Best Bets for Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Ratings

"On February 18, 2021, Representative Juan Vargas introduced H.R. 1187, the ESG Disclosure Simplification Act of 2021, which would require [company] issuers to disclose to shareholders certain environmental, social, and governance (ESG) metrics, the connection between those metrics and the issuer's long term business strategy, and the method by which the issuer determines how ESG metrics affect its long term strategy." In April 2022, further guidance was introduced via H.R. 1028.

The SEC is expected to issue a final rule in October 2022
