Newest Advance Discloser: Trillium Asset Management

I’m pleased to announce that Trillium Asset Management, working with ProxyDemocracy, has begun publishing its intended votes in advance of shareholder meetings and sharing those votes on ProxyDemocracy.org. Jonas Kron of Trillium sent out the following announcement:

Just wanted to let folks know that today Trillium Asset Management Corporation has joined ProxyDemocracy’s list of “Respected Shareholder Activists” and has made its intended proxy votes available in advance of company annual meetings.

ProxyDemocracy aggregates proxy voting data and provides tools to help investors put their voting power to use.

Joining in this effort is consistent with our mission to explore and develop all possible means of social progress offered by the capital markets, and educate other concerned investors in their use; and to support organizations working to build a just society and a better world.

To see Trillium Asset Management Corporation’s voting profile and to search the database please visit http://www.proxydemocracy.org/about/vote_sources and http://trilliuminvest.com/our-approach-to-sri/proxy-voting/search-proxy-votes/

Best,

Jonas

This brings our list of “advance disclosers” to seven, and we’re working to get more. As Jonas’s announcement makes clear, it’s a win-win situation — the disclosers have an opportunity to serve their customers and advance their own governance initiatives, while ProxyDemocracy users get access to considered judgments in time to vote their own shares intelligently.
