Shareholder advocacy is a valuable and particularly influential part of SRI. This is the process by which investors who own stock in a company express their opinions and values directly with the company through proxy resolutions, mailings and other communications, and negotiation. Recently, my friend Leslie Samuelrich, President of Green Century Funds*, visited me in New York. I’ve long been a fan of Green Century because of their commitment to shareholder advocacy, and Leslie and I talked about some of their current efforts and achievements.
