The Sustainable Investments Institute (Si2) is a non-profit organization based in Washington, D.C. We conduct impartial research and publish reports on organized efforts to influence corporate behavior on social and environmental issues.

Si2 closely follows shareholder resolutions proposed by investor activists, analyzing changing reform campaigns and identifying key points of contention in reports that help investors to make informed, independent decisions about their votes and views on these proposals. We also publish related reports for the public on selected topics.

We believe our robust, non-partisan analysis of corporate sustainability concerns informs investor, company and stakeholder dialogues, helping to identify better solutions. Working as an independent institute differentiates Si2 from other companies, activists and researchers in the field. We do not advocate for specific solutions but seek to build a body of agreed knowledge for smart policy-making.

News & Votes

MARCH 7: In A new development, the SEC has rejected Anadarko Petroleum's argument that a shareholder proposal seeking action aligned with the Paris Climate Treaty is "ordinary business." Earlier this year, the SEC told J.B. Hunt Transport it could omit from its proxy statement a resolution seeking greenhouse gas (GHG) goals, affirming a view first expressed at EOG Resources in February 2018--that GHG goals resolutions, even if generally stated, amount to "micromanagement" of a company and therefore will be seen as an "ordinary business" matter.

Companies in 2019 are arguing that many additional subjects may be excluded using this reasoning and the Anadarko decision suggests it will be a mixed bag for companies and potentially a relief to many proponents. Nonetheless, the SEC is about six weeks behind schedule in issuing responses to company challenges of shareholder proposals because it was closed during the government shutdown early in the year, so much remains in flux.
