Best Best & Krieger LLP Partners Mrunal Shah and Kimberly Byrens authored an article that was recently published in Reuters Legal and Westlaw Today. This article addresses the environmental, social and governance (ESG) risks that investors want to be made aware of when buying securities. In an effort to ensure transparency, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has proposed rules on ESG disclosure for corporate securities. 

Per Shah and Byrens, "the investment community's push for guidance on ESG came from two fronts: the desire to invest in ventures with a focus on environmental, social and governing sustainability, and a need to understand the risks that these factors pose to the overall security of any investment." 

In 2021, the SEC announced priorities addressing climate-related risks, and proposed rules in 2022 regarding the corporate disclosure of environmental, social and governing risks. and the impact on publicly traded securities.
