July 10, 2017 // Boston, MA – The first half of every year is a busy time for Trillium’s Shareholder Advocacy team. We finish many of our core engagements from the prior year and begin planning strategy for the following spring season. We engaged with companies in new areas of advocacy and participated in many successful dialogues. Through a combination of shareholder advocacy tools (i.e. shareholder proposals, dialogue, and policy), Trillium and our clients are working to influence change in corporate behavior that we believe benefits investors, society, and the environment.
Our advocacy work focused on over a dozen environmental, social, governance issues including climate change, sustainable agriculture, workplace diversity, income inequality, Indigenous Peoples, LGBT equality, political and lobbying spending, and board oversight.
