Eumedion pushes SEC to allow use of international climate reporting standards

News · 30-05-2022

Eumedion encourages the US securities regulator SEC to allow foreign companies to opt for publishing their climate-related disclosures in accordance with a recognised alternative reporting regime, instead of applying the (future) requirements from the SEC on this topic.  Eumedion also encourages the SEC to require listed entities to report their sustainability-related financial disclosures at the same time as their financial statements. This is what Eumedion writes in its input for the SEC consultation on ‘The Enhancement and Standardization of Climate-Related Disclosures for Investors’. 


Only high quality reporting regimes should be recognised, such as the climate-related disclosures standard currently exposed by the International Sustainability Standards Board (ISSB), and those climate standards adopted by any local jurisdiction that are adopted pursuant to criteria developed by the ISSB.
