ESG factors have become increasingly important for investors and companies alike. While there has been a growing interest in ESG investing and corporate sustainability, the regulatory landscape surrounding ESG in the U.S. has been somewhat fragmented and subject to change. During this panel, we will review the landscape of both Pro- and Anti-ESG Regulatory Action, with topics including:

  • The SEC’s steps to enhance ESG disclosure requirements and improve transparency through rulemaking to mandate standardized ESG disclosures, providing investors with consistent and reliable information
  • State-level initiatives that promote ESG practices and reporting
  • Best practices for navigating shareholder activism
  • Attempts to roll back or limit ESG-related regulations
  • The current landscape of industry opposition with the goal of limiting ESG-related mandates
