This briefing highlights the involvement of the fossil fuel industry in the "anti-ESG" political movement in the US, from the movement's inception to the present.
InfluenceMap documents and research show that the sector was involved in the drafting and distribution of the first "anti-ESG" bills in Texas and West Virginia. The industry has continued to support these bills as they emerge in state legislatures across the US.
This briefing also highlights the corporate membership of key actors involved in this movement, linking back to InfluenceMap's climate policy engagement assessments for these companies.
