As shareowners in the companies we hold, we are entitled to vote in items on their annual proxy at each year’s annual shareholder meeting. Each year, Pax World votes on hundreds of ballot items put forth by company management and shareholders ranging from board of director elections, executive compensation and capital structure to environmental and social issues.
We seek to vote each proxy in a way that is consistent with our environmental, social and governance (ESG) criteria. Pax World exercises our proxy voting responsibility seriously, as it provides another avenue through which to promote improved financial performance and improved ESG policies and practices at companies.
