Proxy Preview 2018: Helping Shareholders Vote Their Values

This report by As You Sow, the Sustainable Investments Institute and Proxy Impact offers a comprehensive look at more than 400 shareholder resolutions filed on environmental, social and sustainable governance issues. It demonstrates how investors continue to seek accountability about climate change risk and corporate political spending, while also raising questions on other critical issues such as the gender pay gap, fake news, the opioid crisis and gun laws.

Of the 400 resolutions filed last year, 80 ask companies to address climate change and explain how they will adapt to a carbon-constrained world. The report includes expert analysis on ways corporate clean energy goals are leading the way to a low-carbon economy, how managing methane will protect climate and reduce investor risk and how to engage with the 100 biggest greenhouse gas emitters.
