Last fall, BCW and Direct Impact (DI) completed a State-by-State Snapshot of the ESG Policy Landscape following the 2022 midterm elections. Focusing on 22 influential and political “battleground” states, we provided insights and cautious predictions on the direction of environmental, social and governance (ESG) policies over the 2023-2024 legislative session cycle across deep-red places like Florida, deep blue places like California and “purple” states like Pennsylvania.
