WASHINGTON – The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) will vote on a landmark climate-risk measure on March 21, the agency said on Thursday.

The notice of the meeting comes following a number of delays, and confirms a Reuters Monday report flagging the imminent vote.

The measure, which would be subject to public consultation, aims to require U.S.-listed companies to provide investors with detailed disclosures on how climate change could affect their business, among other details.
