Dear Chair Gary Gensler,
I am writing to express my support for Proposed Rule S7-10-22: Enhancement and Standardization of Climate-Related Disclosures for Investors.
Climate change stands to create significant instability and disruption in our financial and economic systems. I believe that implementation and enforcement of a strong rule will give investors like me the tools we need to protect our investments and hold companies accountable for reducing heat-trapping emissions.
Corporations have a history of ignoring climate issues and deceiving their investors, the public, and sometimes themselves about their impacts.
I applaud the SEC for exercising its mandate to ensure that investors and the public have access to science-based information about risks that could affect their investments. Climate change will have far-reaching impacts across our society and having data about its likely effects on companies’ assets and long-term business outlook is essential for investors to make informed decisions and protect the wellbeing of our economy.
Please pass a strong climate disclosure rule as soon as possible.
