These policies have affected certain industries and businesses more than others, and are tied to many of the issues addressed in ESG portfolios, like racial justice, climate change, health and wellness, and so on. As we transition to the Biden administration, what are some of the changes you're hoping to see as it relates to environmental policies and regulations?
