Henry I. Stern
- District 27
Existing law generally provides for the regulation of various financial institutions, including banks, credit unions, and finance lenders, by the Department of Financial Protection and Innovation. Existing law requires the Secretary for Environmental Protection to coordinate greenhouse gas emission reductions and climate-change activities in state government. Executive Order N-19-19 requires, among other things, the Department of Finance to create a Climate Investment Framework and to consult with the Office of Planning and Research on the framework. This bill would require a covered entity, as defined, to, on or before December 31, 2022, and annually thereafter, prepare a climate-related financial risk report, as defined, and to submit to the Secretary of State, and make available to the public on its own internet website, a copy of that report. The bill would also require a covered entity to submit to the Secretary of State a statement affirming, not under penalty of perjury, that the climate-related financial risk report discloses climate-related financial risk, as required by the bill. This bill would also require, on or before January 31, 2023, and annually thereafter, the Secretary of State to deliver to the Climate-Related Risk Disclosure Advisory Group in the Office of Planning and Research copies of all climate-related financial risk reports received pursuant to these provisions in the prior calendar year and would require the office to make those reports available to the public on its internet website.
