202.682.8114 |

WASHINGTON, April 4, 2024 — The American Petroleum Institute released the following statement today from API Senior Vice President and General Counsel Ryan Meyers on the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission’s decision to stay its climate-related risk disclosure rule while courts adjudicate its legality:

“We agree with the SEC’s decision to stay this flawed rule and not burden companies with significant compliance costs before courts can adjudicate its legality. The rule would confuse investors rather than advance the dialogue on climate that has been occurring for many years between businesses and their shareholders.”
