The SEC’s Investor Advisory Committee will hold its next public meeting on December 13, 2018 at 9:00 am.  The Committee’s agenda includes a discussion regarding disclosures on sustainability and environmental, social and governance topics, and a discussion regarding unpaid arbitration awards.  Earlier this fall, the SEC received a petition for rulemaking on ESG disclosure, which was signed by institutional investors that included CalPERs, New York State Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli, Illinois State Treasurer Michael Frerichs, Connecticut State Treasurer Denise Nappier and others representing over $5 trillion in managed assets.  The rulemaking petition called for the SEC to propose for comment a comprehensive framework that would require issuers to address certain ESG matters.  The petition is available here.
