What We’re
Calling For

Institutional investors and asset managers hold shares in virtually every publicly listed company in the world, including oil and gas majors, coal producers, banks, and companies driving deforestation. To ensure assets are managed responsibly and in line with a pathway that will preserve a livable planet for all of us, we’re asking investors to support the transition to a decarbonized economy by:

1

Implementing assertive, time-bound engagement policies

2

Voting for shareholder climate resolutions, and against climate-incompetent directors

3

Exiting fossil fuel companies and other climate-destructive corporations that can’t or won’t transition
