Yost Slams Investment Firms’ ESG Efforts

Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost has criticized environmental, social, and governance (ESG) investment policies in a conversation with the Foundation for Government Accountability, a conservative think tank.

In this brief video, Yost says investment firms are using retirement assets to make businesses beholden to ESG mandates and political agendas. “If you’re managing other people’s money without their consent in a way that isn’t trying to make them more money — just asserting your politics … you’ve got a legal problem,” Yost said. 9/13/2023
