ESG proposal

Why hasn't AARP come out challenging the government instituting a rule that explicitly permits ERISA retirement plan fiduciaries to consider environmental, social, and corporate governance (ESG) factors when selecting investments and exercising shareholder rights? No "Green" investment is safe because the vast majority of them fail within the first few years. Retirees could lose a substantial amount of their savings if this rule is allowed to stand.

 

There is a bipartisan coalition in Congress challenging this and yet not a word from AARP.

Thanks for info.  All info on environmental, social, and corporate governance, are disclosed in SEC filings.  Even if you use a retail investor website like yahoo finance you can find that information.

Shouldn't that decision be up to the investor? Personally, I don't need that kind of "protection".
