ESG ADVISORY

PULLP’s Dedicated Microcap Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Advisory Practice

On March 21, 2022, the SEC proposed a new rule, significantly increasing disclosure requirements that relate to: (1) climate related risks, (2) greenhouse gas emissions, and (3) climate-related financial metrics.  The SEC partly modeled the proposed climate disclosure framework on the Task Force on Climate Related Financial Disclosure (“TCFD”) and the Greenhouse Gas Protocol (“GHG Protocol”) emissions reporting framework. As a law firm focused on providing services and counsel to the microcap space, we fully embrace the challenge these new requirements pose for the microcap space.
