Indiana treasurer adds BlackRock to state ESG watchlist

Indiana Treasurer Daniel Elliott (R) announced June 21 that he added BlackRock, the world’s largest asset manager, to “a state watchlist, accusing the firm of making illegal environmental, social or governance (ESG) commitments,” according to the Indiana Capital Chronicle. The decision was related to a 2023 state law banning ESG in state pension investments.
