Shareholders of a corporation not only have the right to participate in the financial growth and success of their corporation, they also have the right to vote on important matters concerning the company’s policies, practices and governance. As investors in Calvert’s mutual funds, our shareholders convey this important responsibility to us.
Calvert believes that proxy voting is the most direct means by which investors can influence corporate behavior. Calvert casts votes to companies’ shareholder resolutions based on our guidelines described here.
We believe our shareholders have a right to know how we are voting company proxies on their behalf; therefore, Calvert Funds’ proxy voting decisions are disclosed on our website. We hope that by disclosing our proxy voting decisions, others will use this information as a guide in casting their votes.
