DOL Proposes Rules Regarding ESG Factors and Proxy Voting
Kilpatrick TownsendLink to more items from this source
[Guidance Overview]
Oct. 15, 2021

"The Proposed Regulations represent a significant change in the DOL's viewpoint of fiduciary duties that relate to ESG factors and shareholder activism, but they do not fundamentally alter the fiduciary duties to make investment decisions and to vote proxies and exercise shareholder rights to enhance investment returns. They may nevertheless have an impact by removing potential barriers from selecting funds that, for example, take into account climate change impacts or corporate governance practices as part of their investment strategies."
