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

June 19: The spring 2020 proxy season has produced an unprecedented 19 majority votes on social and environmental issues, on topics ranging from human capital management to the opioid crisis, board diversity, climate change, election spending, lobbying and mandatory arbitration. The number of majorities outstrips the previous peak of 12 in 2018.

The SEC indicates that it plans to publish final rules about shareholder resolutions and proxy advisory firms by the end of September. The proposed rules issued on Nov. 5, 2019, would make it harder to file proposals, substantially increase requirements for resubmissions and impose new restrictions on proxy advisory firms.
