ESG in the Spotlight
Wednesday, November 3, 2021
12:05–12:50 pm ET

Regulators—in the United States and globally—are squarely focused on ESG. In the United States, the SEC has put ESG on its rulemaking agenda, created a Division of Enforcement task force dedicated to climate and ESG issues, and focused on climate and ESG-related risks in its examinations. The Department of Labor also has crafted a proposal to amend its 2020 final rule on ESG investments. This panel will bring you up to date on these and other ESG regulatory developments.
