All across the world, climate disclosure regulations are among the most significant and complex challenges faced by companies and boards, with a variety of requirements emanating this past year from numerous governmental authorities and non-governmental organizations.

At Mayer Brown, I had the honor of leading a group of 21 partners from across 14 of the firm’s offices in 8 countries to produce a white paper discussing key features and differences of a dozen authorities. We identify considerations for boards concerning disclosure practices, as well as governance and risk management. We also suggest some practical steps that might be taken in order to prepare for the year ahead.  An appendix presents the jurisdictional comparisons in summary form.
