Our active ownership efforts utilize a variety of tools to directly engage companies on adopting higher standards related to Catholic ethical and social teaching. One of the most critical elements is proxy voting—we have updated the Proxy Voting Database page on our website, adding new graphics, charts and tables, to better highlight our voting record and provide details on the impact we are having.
Among the new details depicted are our full voting volume, votes by proposal category, meetings by type and sector, how we align (or don’t!) with management, and more. In addition, we still provide the full, searchable database of our historical voting record. Another new aspect: all the graphics re-adjust based on the input you give the tool, allowing for a more personalized and interactive experience. We urge you to take a look!
