セミナー概要/Seminar outline



Anti-ESG policies are taking shape across the US. Several Certain US state has passed a new state law requiring that decisions as to the investment of state assets be based solely on financial factors (i.e., without taking ESG concerns into consideration). In addition, the anti-ESG movement has resulted in litigation in the US and other jurisdictions, with lawsuits being filed to challenge ESG-related activities and decisions.

In this seminar, attorneys from Baker McKenzie’s Tokyo and Chicago offices will provide an overview of the anti-ESG movement and explain practical measures that can be taken in response to it.
