Energy companies are increasingly focusing on the “E” of ESG—environmental, social, and governance issues—to identify paths to address climate change risks and sustainability as part of their business models. Pressure from a wide array of stakeholders, including shareholders, employees, customers, suppliers, governmental entities, and the communities in which they operate, are driving energy producers to develop ESG strategies and set goals to reduce the environmental impacts of their operations and their products. In this context, understanding and anticipating the evolving legal landscape for navigating the “E” of ESG is key to mitigating business risks, ensuring stakeholder confidence, and strengthening long-term financial performance.
