Advocacy & Policy
Welcome to the Trillium Advocacy Dashboard
At Trillium, we consider it fundamental to our mission and our fiduciary responsibility to engage with the companies that we hold on behalf of our clients and policymakers to press for positive change on ESG topics or opportunities that we believe will help improve ESG policies, performance, or impact.
Watch and learn more about what shareholder advocacy means at Trillium:
Trillium exercises the shareholder’s right to file a shareholder proposal asking companies to address ESG topics.
These proposals can come up for a vote at the company’s annual meeting and can be useful ways to change a corporation’s behavior.
