Pending Global Warming Resolutions for 2007 Proxy Season
Jan 28, 2011
Investors have filed 42 global warming resolutions with U.S. companies as part of the 2007 proxy season – nearly double the number of climate-related resolutions filed just three years ago. The resolutions, seeking greater disclosure from companies on their responses and strategies to climate-related business trends, were filed by state and city pension funds and labor, foundation, religious and other institutional shareholders. The filers collectively manage more than $200 billion in assets. Some of the resolutions at these companies are not proceeding to a vote either because the proposal was withdrawn by shareholders after a satisfactory pledge by the company to implement the request, or because the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) excluded the proposal on technical grounds.
