Trillium Submits Response to SEC Proposal on Sustainability Disclosures
Trillium recently issued a statement in response to the release of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC)’s business and financial disclosure requirements in Regulation S-K. Regulation S-K mandates the information public companies are required to file with the SEC.
Alongside key players such as Ceres, The Forum for Sustainable and Responsible Investment (US SIF), and the Interfaith Center on Corporate Responsibility (ICCR), we encourage the SEC to require companies to disclose their environmental, social, and governance (ESG) practices as part of information filed under Regulation S-K.
For several years, investors have urged the SEC to revise disclosures and improve ESG reporting by companies in their filings. Trillium believes that companies that adhere to positive ESG policies can increase profitability and deliver strong long-term performance. We support enforceable SEC requirements for companies to report ESG information. View Trillium’s letter here.
