The proposed SEC rules governing ESG disclosures promise to usher in a new era of regulatory oversight for which many teams are unprepared. They may not know where to start or what compliance with the proposed rules looks like. This session covers the specific steps teams can take today, tomorrow, and in the future to prepare for compliance, reduce ESG risk exposure for their organizations, and in the process protect brand equity and stock prices, among other tangible benefits.
