In 2021, CBIS filed a groundbreaking resolution asking ExxonMobil to provide investors with crucial information that would allow investors to factor climate-related information into financial statements and audits. Despite nearly half (49%) of shareholders voting in favor of our proposal, Exxon has still not met our requests.
CBIS now encourages all investors to again vote in favor of our Shareholder Proposal, Item 8 – Report on Scenario Analysis, to be voted on at the ExxonMobil shareholder meeting on May 25, 2022. Read our full rationale in CBIS’ Proxy Exempt Solicitation.
“CBIS is not alone in our requests – global investors, the S.E.C., and even oil & gas companies are recognizing that risks from climate change need to be made visible to aid the investment decision-making process. We also have a higher calling – taking action to Save Our Common Home as directed in Laudato Si and the Socially Responsible Investment Guidelines of The United States Conference Of Catholic Bishops.”
John W. Geissinger, Chief Investment Officer, CBIS
