Climate Disclosure Opens up Litigation Path

Mintz Member Jacob Hupart spoke to IFLR on the potential impact the new SEC proposal on climate disclosures could have on litigation. Jacob commented, "The SEC is putting companies in a difficult situation... We are talking about companies that are in the business of making money for their shareholders... While there should be an awareness of environmental issues, asking companies – especially smaller ones – to evaluate how they impact the climate is a challenge... There could be a lot of opinions on how that goes forward.”
