Resolutions

A channel through which asset managers may influence companies aside from communicating with the company directly is proxy voting on shareholder resolutions at the annual general meetings. InfluenceMap only analyzes voting on resolutions deemed to be climate-relevant. The climate-relevance categorization is based on the IPCC’s Special Report on 1.5C and its statement of the need for “rapid and far-reaching transitions in land, energy, industry, buildings, transport, and cities.” InfluenceMap considers voting on any resolution where the intent and likely outcome is consistent with the IPCC's report.

FinanceMap looked at a population of around 250 ESG and other potential climate-related resolutions filed in 2018 and prioritized 56 of these as deemed climate-relevant as measured against the IPCC benchmark. This was repeated over 2019-2020, and InfluenceMap identified 56 resolutions in 2019 and 60 resolutions in 2020.
