ESG; Climate Change; Sustainability

Overview

The phrase "Environmental, Social and Governance" refers to a broad list of social and political concerns, not all of which are closely related. Of these concerns, the two predominant ones are generally climate change (under the heading of environmental) and diversity (under the heading of social). While there is very limited direct rulemaking on these topics, there is a good deal of rule consideration, threats of enforcement action, studies and speech making by all of the principal regulatory agencies.
