Shareholder Engagement

pressing corporations for change

As owners of public corporations, investors have a voice. Our clients press for sustainable change through shareholder activism. Our leading-edge shareholder proposals make the case for why change is in corporations’ enlightened self-interest.

Gender Pay Equity

The Gender Pay Gap is not expected to close until 2058. Investors are not willing to wait that long. Following engagements with Arjuna Capital, Apple, Intel, Amazon, Expedia, and eBay have all committed to Gender Pay Equity today.

Gender Pay Equity is not only good for women, it’s good for business – paying women a fair wage is key to attracting and retaining top talent, fostering diverse leadership teams, innovation, and stronger financial outcomes.

Carbon Asset Risk

Big Oil needs to shrink. As investors, we think they should do it profitably. Society can’t burn all the carbon reserves we already have on tap without catastrophic climate disruption. So why waste investor capital looking for more?

Our latest engagements with Exxon and Chevron ask the oil giants to focus on shareholder value, not growth. For a growth plan will destroy value this century – and already has.

Our 2014 landmark negotiation with ExxonMobil marked the first time Exxon provided disclosure into how it is (or is not) planning for a low carbon future.

Net Neutrality

In a mockumentary titled “The Internet Must Go,” Arjuna’s Chief Strategist Farnum Brown explains Net Neutrality to a comedian posing as a hapless cable industry shill. Arjuna Capital has long advocated for Net Neutrality as a way to promote a free and competitive digital marketplace of ideas—whether political, cultural or commercial.

Fugitive Methane Emissions

Is natural gas a more sustainable fuel? Or do potent methane leaks render it worse for the climate than coal? Our clients filed the first shareholder proposals pressing companies to plug leaks, and in so doing, capture lost revenue.

Distributed Energy

Will rooftop solar threaten the viability of large scale fossil-fuel fired power plants? Nearly 40% of Entergy shareholders think management needs to incorporate distributed energy resources like solar and energy efficiency into its business planning.

ESG Impact

environmental, social and governance

At Arjuna Capital, we widen the aperture to include environmental, social and governance (ESG) risks and opportunities in fundamental investment analysis. ESG risks and opportunities are often missed by the broader market. Research indicates that incorporating these factors can enhance long-term financial performance. At some point it won’t be called ESG investing. It will just be called smart investing.

Investing in the new economy
