Update: The Securities and Exchange Commission adopted final rules on March 6, 2024 to require registrants to disclose certain climate-related information in registration statements and annual reports. Since that final rule was adopted, numerous suits have been filed to challenge the rulemaking authority of the SEC in this matter. As a result, the SEC in early April exercised its discretion to stay the final rule pending review in the Eighth Circuit U.S Court of Appeals.  We will be following this legal action and will provide updates. Please note a stay temporarily halts enforcement. If the courts rule favorably for the SEC, large accelerated filers will still be expected to report full-year 2025 data.
