Responsible Wealth: Corporate Accountability


Shareholder actions are a vital tool in raising awareness about the need for corporations to take into account the needs of shareholders and consider the company's larger role as a corporate citizen.

Since 1998, Responsible Wealth members have filed over 100 shareholder resolutions seeking to affect corporate behavior on a number of topics, including:

  • Excessive CEO pay
  • Race and gender discrimination in lending
  • Gender discrimination in pay
  • Living wages
  • Holding a physical (vs. virtual) annual meeting
  • The right of shareholders to vote on CEO compensation (“Say on Pay”)
  • Public disclosure of political donations
