Throughout 2022, states have adopted very different approaches on environmental, social and governance investing, threatening to curb state pension fund managers from considering ESG factors when making investments.

Seeking to clear up the confusion, Ropes & Gray attorneys created a state-by-state analysis that tracks and monitors state ESG investing rule changes for investment professionals to devise strategies to understand this patchwork of state rules.

The analysis published in the Harvard Law School Forum on Corporate Governance was created by ERISA and benefits partner Joshua Lichtenstein, ESG, CSR and business & human rights partner and global chair Michael Littenberg, and ERISA and benefits associates Reagan Haas and Jonathan Reinstein.
