AAF Applauds House Efforts Combatting ESG

July 11, 2023

Advancing American Freedom issued the following statement ahead of the House Financial Services Committee holding the first of six hearings on Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) investing and the government regulators who enable ESG.

“ESG is a thorn in the side of American energy production, and everyday Americans are the ones who pay the price for this type of governance,” said AAF Executive Director Paul Teller. “AAF applauds the work of House Financial Services to hold government regulators accountable for their promotion of ESG and looks forward to ESG being addressed throughout the appropriations process.”

Advancing American Freedom has been an outspoken critic of ESG. In 2022, AAF launched an energy independence campaign that included placing targeted advertisements in congressional districts and hosting a nationwide series of policy events. In 2023, AAF released a legislative agenda to combat ESG and led multiple coalition letters to Congress calling for anti-ESG legislation to be passed.
