New Framework Released for Evaluating Impact of Shareholder Activism

A new report, “The Impact of Equity Engagement: Evaluating the Impact of Shareholder Engagement in Public Equity Investing,” seeks to change the perception that it can be hard to observe, track and quantify the impact of shareholder activism on environmental and social issues. Clean Yield Asset Management was pleased to serve on the Steering Committee for the Impact of Equity Engagement (IE2) initiative, which released the report. In a blog published today, its lead author, Dr. Josh Humphreys of the Croatan Institute, observes,”The nature of impact within public equity investing remains poorly understood and insufficiently documented.”
The report is introducing a new self-reporting framework that will be beta-tested by Clean Yield and a number of our peers engaged in shareholder advocacy.
