AES Corp., which operates several coal-fired power plants in the U.S., has agreed to put more information about global warming in its public financial disclosures.

New York Attorney General Andrew Cuomo said Thursday that AES, based in Arlington, Va., is the latest power company to agree to give investors more information about pollution.

Among other things, the company will be disclosing information on its current carbon emissions and any planned increases in pollution from its coal-burning plants.

Other companies have already agreed to make similar disclosures, including Dynegy Inc. and Xcel Energy Inc.

AES representatives did not immediately return phone messages.
