Investors have grown increasingly interested in environmental, social, and governance (ESG) issues. This has translated into a surge in demand for ESG-related information. The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is taking a holistic look at how climate and ESG issues are integral to its work. The agency is moving ahead with efforts across its offices and divisions to account for the ways in which climate and ESG intersect with its regulatory framework. In the last few months, the agency has taken important steps forward and is actively laying the groundwork for more progress to come.

Please join the Center for American Progress and SEC Acting Chair Allison Herren Lee to discuss the Commission’s current efforts to bring climate and ESG issues to the forefront of its work.

We would love to hear your questions. Please submit any questions for our distinguished panel via email at CAPeventquestions@americanprogress.org or on Twitter using #InvestInSustainability. Live captioning will be available on Zoom and on the YouTube livestream.
