Sooner or later, companies in the U.S. are going to be faced with a new reason to measure and report on climate action performance: legislation. Businesses are anxiously awaiting the release of the Securities and Exchange Commission's (SEC) new rule for climate risk disclosure.

In this session, sustainability experts from Schneider Electric, MSCI, and Wyndham Hotels & Resorts discuss what companies need to do now to be prepared for the SEC ruling, including:
- What the final rule is likely to include
- What data and processes companies should consider capturing to ensure they're ready for these mandates
- How to assess material subjects for disclosure
