The 2017 proxy season marked a turning point for environmental shareholder activism. For the first time, shareholders of several major companies approved proposals calling for more disclosures about company policies related to climate change. Meanwhile, several of the world’s most significant institutional investors supported these proposals and elsewhere emphasized linkages between environmentally-protective policies and strong shareholder value. Environmental shareholder activism poses significant challenges and risks for directors and managers of companies, particularly companies that intend to push back on any aspect of popular shareholder demands. Forming an effective strategic plan for responding to environmental shareholder activism requires advance policy planning, a coordinated plan for disclosures, and proactive engagement with major investors. Join us for a discussion of environmental shareholder activism and strategies you should be implementing now for effective engagement in 2018.
