Shareholder Resolutions to Vote in 2019

Conference

The 2019 shareholder season is underway! Nearly 400 shareholder resolutions have been filed on a wide range of social, environmental, and corporate governance issues.

If you own direct company stock, be sure to Vote Your Values – use your proxy ballots to let management know you want corporate practices that support people and the planet.

Thanks to As You Sow, the Sustainable Investments Institute, and Proxy Impact, publishers of the 2019 Proxy Preview, for assistance in compiling the lists below. Green America is proud to co-sponsor the 2019 Proxy Preview; download your free copy for information on important shareholder resolutions trends and upcoming votes. proxy preview 2017.jpg

Below are some of the corporations facing shareholder resolutions on social, environmental, and corporate governance issues. We have highlighted a few of the resolutions at these companies that impact people and the planet. If you own stock directly in these or other companies, read your proxy ballots carefully to vote in favor of resolutions that reflect your values. You may have the opportunity to vote on issues such as greenhouse gas emission targets, plastics pollution, gender and minority pay disparity, the human right to water, and deforestation impacts.

Here are quick tips on how to read a proxy ballot.

As a share owner, you are a part-owner of the company, and voting your proxy is an important responsibility. Thank you for voting your values!
