Episode 37 – Energy & Infrastructure: What’s Behind The Wave of ESG Shareholder Activism?

After years of garnering little attention, environmental, social, and governance (ESG) matters are now top-of-mind for institutional investors – and are beginning to drive activist campaigns. What is behind this wave of ESG activism? And what can companies do to prepare for the possibility of an ESG-driven activist campaign?

In this episode of Connected With Latham, we continue our Energy & Infrastructure series with a look at how company boards and management are navigating the choppy waters of ESG-related activism . Lauren Anderson, a private equity partner in Houston, speaks with Chris Drewry, a Chicago partner and head of the firm’s Activism Defense Practice, and Tiffany Campion, a Senior Attorney in Chicago who focuses on takeover defense and shareholder activism about the trends they are seeing.
