Anti-ESG is Anti-Business with Andy Behar

February 10, 2023 at 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EST

- Free for All

The recent wave of anti-ESG rhetoric has left many investors confused. How can a framework for assessing investing risk be somehow associated with “devil-worship?” Why are you hearing that most ESG is simply green-washing? The truth is that the handful of well-funded disinformation players perpetuating these lies are terrified that thoughtful investors now consider material risk in their portfolio decision-making. This session will explore who is behind the misinformation and what motivates their actions, what are the facts about ESG and sustainable investing, how are the regulatory authorities helping or hindering investors’ ability to invest responsibly, and what you can say the next time a friend or colleague questions the shift to a regenerative economy based on justice and sustainability.

Our speaker, Andy Behar, is an expert on shareholder advocacy and engagement. With a 30-year track record of success, his organization, As You Sow, advances values-aligned investing and uses shareholder power to compel companies to reduce material risk on issues including climate change; toxins in the food system; ocean plastics; diversity, equity, and inclusion; racial justice; and wage equity. Andy has also been tracking the anti-ESG movement closely. There are few people who will be able to provide the level of knowledge and insight that Andy will bring to this session.
