In the past, shareholder votes on the environment were rare and easily brushed aside. But in an insightful report, Reuters showed how things could look different in the annual meeting season starting next month, when companies are set to face the most investor resolutions tied to climate change in years. Those votes are likely to win more support than in previous years from large asset managers seeking clarity on how executives plan to adapt and prosper in a low-carbon world, according to Reuters interviews with more than a dozen activist investors and fund managers. In the U.S., shareholders have filed 79 climate-related resolutions so far, compared with 72 in 2020 and 67 in 2019. The institute estimated the count could reach 90 this year.
