ICCR publishes annual impact report

The Interfaith Center on Corporate Responsibility (ICCR) recently published a report highlighting shareholder advocacy successes during the 2018 proxy season. Ranging from high vote totals on shareholder resolutions to resolutions that were withdrawn due to agreements with the corporation, the report documents impact that shareholders have had in the past year.

Everence® is a longtime ICCR member and has been part of several successes listed in the 2018 report, including climate change with oil companies and utilities, and ethical labor recruitment across many industries.

For nearly 50 years, ICCR members have engaged hundreds of corporations annually in an effort to foster improved performance on issues such as human rights, climate change, corporate water stewardship, sustainable food production, and health equity.
