AXPC Statement on SEC Climate Disclosure Rule

Washington, DC – Today, American Exploration & Production Council CEO Anne Bradbury issued the following statement after the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) issued its final rule to require climate-related disclosures:

“The SEC should stick to its stated mission to protect investors, maintain fair, orderly, and efficient markets, and facilitate capital formation – rather than mandate overly burdensome disclosures that will impede progress the business community has made and continues to make in providing climate-related information to investors.

“While AXPC is still reviewing the SEC’s rule and sees some improvements, we remain skeptical as to the benefit of its mandated disclosures, including concerns about its feasibility, reasonable comparability, appropriate timelines, as well as considerations regarding cost and impacts to the energy industry.”


  • Climate-related material information for investor decision-making is already required by law, and duplicative, prescriptive mandates from the SEC are unnecessary and unnecessarily burdensome.
