Shareholders Vote Their Values Through Proxies
It’s proxy season again, when shareholders in public companies can file resolutions on issues they would like considered at annual company meetings. A new report offers a look at 2017’s proxy efforts, and a preview of those to come in 2018. Proxy Preview 2018 gives an overview of the more than 400 shareholder resolutions that were filed last year; more than 80 were directed toward questions re. climate change and how companies planned to address it. Others raised concerns about other ESG and socio-political issues, such as the gender pay gap and the opioid crisis. Published by Proxy Impact, As You Sow, and the Sustainable Investments Institute, the report offers a detailed update of the current state of accountability.
