In Historic Year of Filings, ESG Shareholder Resolutions Continue to Define Corporate Risk

BERKELEY, CA   |   July 13, 2022
34 majority votes show enduring investor support

The Proxy Preview team today released highlights of the unprecedented 2022 proxy season, which so far has seen a record-breaking 282 votes and 34 majorities votes favoring disclosure and action on environmental, social, and sustainable governance (ESG) shareholder resolutions.

The number of majority votes for these proposals is the same as last year at this point. Six of the majorities — including five on climate change — came when companies did not voice opposition. At least two dozen more votes are possible by year’s end and more majorities are likely.
