Three things this week: NASA, SEC and Bloomberg Featured

Written by 
  1. If you’re about to skip Earth Day, go to NASA for a close gaze at the Blue Marble, first shot in ‘72 from a million miles away. Earth Day is 46 middle-aged years old today; 10 million people participated in '70. Today, 1 billion people will participate in activities around the Blue Marble. Don’t be a chump–do something.
  2. Paris, or bust–what the SEC is doing about it: Also today, on Earth Day, at least 55% of the world’s climate emitting countries are expected to ratify the treaty in NYC. Maybe that’s why last week theSEC released a paper to discuss implementing climate/sustainability disclosure rules. Non-financial rules haven’t changed since first published 30 years ago; SEC’s commissioners think it’s time for an update. Go here for the SEC doc, and here for an article by Institute of Management Accountants. Our FastTrack reporting service aligns company disclosures to SASB, so you’ll be ready when the rules change, and they will.
  3. US will exceed Paris commitments, because Mr. Bloomberg says so. If you doubt American resolve to lead on climate change, in light of the Supreme Court freeze on the Clean Power Plan, fret no more. Mr. Bloomberg lays out why in an article he released on Earth-Day-eve. To see how Bloomberg Financial's ESG screens are used to assess your company's GHGs and other non-financial KPIs, watch our on-demand 30-minute speedinar: How Investors and Analysts Use Bloomberg’s ESG Data, with guest speaker Gregory Elders, Senior Analyst at Bloomberg Intelligence.
