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

By World BEYOND War, March 28, 2023

In this webinar with CODEPINK, World BEYOND War, and Andrew Behar with As You Sow, from March 27th, participants discussed 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. Biden vetoed the resolution on March 20th. Across the United States, 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. Watch this 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.
