Mandatory Climate Disclosures: The Writing on the Wall is Clear
Updated March 2021​

Global regulatory trends and support for an international reporting standard add new urgency for firms to quantify and analyze the potential material impacts of climate risk to their bottom lines.

This updated Jupiter Intelligence special report provides leaders with a new breakdown of the complex and evolving regulatory environment as well as guidelines on best practices for monitoring, measuring and disclosing climate risks.

As a growing number of regulatory bodies aim to help companies measure and adapt to the material risks of climate change, countries have taken widespread action on mandatory climate disclosure in recent months. Most notably, these include the United Kingdom, Hong Kong, South Korea and New Zealand.

With President Joe Biden and the U.S. Congress poised to act, companies should expect more regulations from the United States as well. The U.S. Treasury, Securities and Exchange Commission, Federal Reserve, and Commodity Futures Trading Commission have enhanced their initiatives on monitoring climate and environmental risks, including promoting the need for mandatory climate disclosures.

Due to increasing support for disclosures, international standard-setting organizations are shaping a sustainability standards board to coalesce reporting on these issues.

Forward-thinking asset managers, companies across the greater corporate sector, and investors should recognize that these trends will continue to intensify and must act now.
