Climate change threatens the lives and livelihoods of people in every region of the world. Climate change is also a critical economic and financial challenge. The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is proposing a rule that will help people make better informed decisions about their investments. The rule would require publicly traded companies to provide investors and the public with information about how they are affected by the financial risks of climate change.

The SEC is seeking comments on this proposed rule - but only until June 17. Voice your support now.
