02 November 2022 Infrastructure Investor News

Foley & Lardner LLP Partner Michael Kirwan is quoted in the Infrastructure Investor article “Is the ESG Wind changing?” discussing the recent pushback in some circles against the environmental, social, and corporate governance (ESG) movement.

Kirwan, who is the chair of Foley’s ESG Team, said while “we are definitely seeing a pushback on ESG matters in certain areas as political partisanship has focused on ESG…it is unlikely that the tenets of ESG are going to go away.”

“ESG is fundamentally a risk management concept,” he added.
