Remarks before the 2015 Baruch College Financial Reporting Conference by James Schnurr, SEC Chief Accountant
Good morning and thank you for the introduction. I am happy to be with you today and it is my pleasure to share the stage with Jim Kroeker, who certainly has a unique perspective having served as the SEC Chief Accountant prior to becoming the Vice Chairman of the FASB.[1] As I have previously stated, when I arrived at the Commission last October, Chair White asked me to make a recommendation to her as to what action, if any, the Commission should take regarding the further incorporation of IFRS[2] into the U.S. capital markets. In December, I gave a speech that mentioned a potential alternative of allowing domestic issuers to provide IFRS-based information as a supplement to U.S. GAAP[3] financial statements without requiring reconciliation. I thought it would be helpful to spend a few minutes this morning providing you with a brief update on some of the recent activities of OCA,[4] as well as some of the current thinking with respect to convergence and IFRS.

The Role of Data in Today’s Environmental, Social & Governance (ESG) Programs
Last month I had the opportunity to attend a Sustainability Practice Network discussion at Baruch College here in New York. The topic, Under the Hood: Corporate Sustainability 2014 was a broad-based discussion of Environmental, Social & Governance (ESG) programs including their development, implementation and the data that is derived from them. As someone still learning the intricacies of ESG, it was reassuring to note that this topic, or better, this idea, is truly still a work in progress. Why? Because today’s corporations are implementing ESG-based programs differently across industries, and the data that is created is being used in a multitude of ways.
