Webinar: ESG trends and impacts on public pensions

In Politics by Michael Rae

Former U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission Commissioner Paul Atkins, former CKE Restaurants Chief Executive Officer Andy Puzder, and Reason Foundation Vice President Leonard Gilroy discuss how environmental, social, and governance (ESG) strategies and trends are impacting public pension systems and taxpayers.

They examine how public pension plans factoring ESG into investment decisions may be neglecting their fiduciary obligations to maximize returns at acceptable risk levels and debate whether states pushing broad anti-ESG laws may unintentionally harm their own underfunded public pension systems.
