Attacks on ESG Investment and What They Mean for our Movements to Divest

What is ESG Investing & How Does It Impact Divestment Movements?

Join us now:

Join CODEPINK, World BEYOND War, and Andrew Behar with As You Sow on Monday, March 27th at 5pm PT/8pm ET for a discussion about the mounting controversy surrounding environmental, social, and governance (ESG) investing, and how this impacts divestment from weapons, fossil fuels, and other extractive industries.

Earlier this month, Congress passed a resolution to overturn Biden's 2022 rule permitting ESG investment, which Biden vetoed on March 20. Nationwide, there are lawsuits mounting and state-level anti-ESG legislation in the works. ESG investment is also being increasingly scapegoated for economic downturn, with the recent collapse of Silicon Valley Bank being blamed on its ESG investments. Join us as we talk with experts on ESG investment about what to make of these legislative and legal battles, how they may impact our divestment movements, and how to take action.
