SEC’s climate risk disclosure rules to drive risk mgmt & transfer spend

As the US Securities & Exchange Commission (SEC) publishes a new set of proposed rules on climate risk disclosure, it’s becoming increasingly clear regulating for climate risk reporting is going to drive risk management and risk transfer spend, with ramifications and opportunity for insurance, reinsurance and insurance-linked securities (ILS).

Yesterday, the SEC published its proposals, saying that registrants will need to “include certain climate-related disclosures in their registration statements and periodic reports, including information about climate-related risks that are reasonably likely to have a material impact on their business, results of operations, or financial condition, and certain climate-related financial statement metrics in a note to their audited financial statements.”

The benefits to investors are clear, as climate related disclosure from corporations and other entities will help climate-appropriate investment decisions be made.
