Washington — Globally, the inability to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus COVID-19 has resulted in an ongoing joint public health and economic crisis.

Accordingly, absolute greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions have fallen.
Washington – British nobleman and contrarian investor Baron Rothschild once declared, “When there’s blood on the streets, buy real estate.” As we battle COVID-19 today, the updated mantra is more like: “When there’s turmoil on the Street, invest in your stakeholders.”

As growing numbers of companies embrace sustainability practices, the question of whether those efforts can provide a competitive edge through strategic differentiation becomes increasingly important.
Shareholders generally get the right to vote on key corporate issues at the company's annual meeting of shareholders. Since most investors may not be able to attend, companies offer an opportunity to vote by sending ballots in advance that authorize officers of the company to cast their votes at the meeting in their absence. This process is known as proxy voting.
