ESG Standards as Transnational Rules for Energy Transition

TEXAS CLE in Mexico City

Windmills, Rigs, and solar panles

Principles of Governance • Plant • People • Prosperity

Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) practices exist as a consequence of energy industry expansion and higher demand for corporate responsibility. ESG standards are designed to help organizations assess the impact of industry on the environment and society and take measures to limit negative effects. These standards can turn into transnational regulation as they become generally accepted by transnational actors in the global economy. Today, they can be found in national law, as well as in international treaties, industry guidances, and arbitration rules. University of Houston Law Center Professor Julián Cárdenas will discuss these standards in the context of energy transition.
