Responsible Wealth: Shareholder Action

Shareholder resolutions force corporate boards and shareholders to think beyond the interests of those around the table and consider the company's larger role as a corporate citizen. Since 1998, Responsible Wealth members have filed over 100 shareholder resolutions on issues ranging from extreme CEO pay to predatory lending. See here for details.

How does it work?
To file or co-file a shareholder resolution, a stockholder must have owned a minimum of $2,000 worth of the company's stock continuously for at least one year. In addition to filing resolutions, Responsible Wealth members also assign their proxies to allow others (including representatives of low-income groups affected by corporate policies) to represent them at annual meetings.
