Proxy voting

We believe it’s our responsibility to communicate with corporate management about issues of financial and social concern through careful, values-driven voting of proxies.

How we do it

Urging companies toward good

Why we do it

Resolutions focus corporate attention on often-overlooked issues and ask the company to take certain actions to address a specific social, environmental or governance concern.

Voting for values

Praxis votes are guided by our values-driven proxy voting guidelines that support of our six stewardship investing core values.

Voting matters

Votes on shareholder resolutions are not legally binding, but even modest positive results (10 to 20 percent) have a significant persuasive influence on companies’ boards of directors.

Our voting record

We believe voting transparently is important. So our proxy votes are posted approximately 10 days prior to a company’s annual meeting date.

Votes “Against Management” indicate issues of concern where Everence believes alternative actions are required for reason of social or financial responsibility.
