Defining ESG: BPC Launches ESG Task Force To Help Make Sense of It All

This event has passed.

Nothing has dominated Wall Street more the past few years than talk of “ESG.” Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) issues have permeated discussions about the proper role of corporations in society, how corporations address and disclose ESG issues, and to what extent stakeholders are entitled to use the information. To complicate matters more, there are a range of opinions on how to define ESG, and what type of information should be considered.

Additionally, the Biden Administration is pushing for increased government action on ESG issues, including mandating disclosure through the SEC. Congress also seems poised to act on a wide range of ESG issues. These factors add an urgency to help properly define ESG for policymakers, companies, stakeholders, and the investment community.

BPC’s goal is to inform policymakers about ESG, disclose how companies are responding, and layout the issues that are likely to demand attention in 2021. BPC, with the help of their newly created ESG Task Force, will serve as an objective, bipartisan forum to demystify ESG issues and help inform public debates. Join on us March 29th at 2pm for the inaugural event of our ESG Task Force.
