On June 19, 2021, Ann Lipton posted an item on the Law Professor Blogs Network regarding climate change disclosures and U.S. private companies.

Noting that the SEC recently called for public comment on the issue of mandatory climate reporting and that  comments are in the process of being posted on the SEC’s site, she observed that, in the original request for information, one of the questions that the SEC asked was as follows:

What climate-related information is available with respect to private companies, and how should the Commission’s rules address private companies’ climate disclosures, such as through exempt offerings, or its oversight of certain investment advisers and funds?

Not all commenters have responded to this question, but the blog posting by Ms. Ann Lipton highlights a number of interesting responses made by certain commentators to this question.
