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

OCT. 17: The Securities and Exchange Commission yesterday issued Staff Legal Bulletin 14K, the third in as many years, elaborating on its views about what issues may be excluded from proxy statements under provisions of the Shareholder Proposal Rule . It addresses the "ordinary business" provision of the rule and how commission staff views what may or may not constitute "micromanagement."

A shift in interpretation two years ago has meant that a disproportionate number of longstanding climate change proposals about setting targets for reducing greenhouse gases have been excluded. This bulletin says that proposals that are specifically significant to a particular company may not be excluded, while others that have less specific connection to a company may be excluded.
