Shareholder Advocacy

Calvert uses strategic engagement and shareholder advocacy to encourage positive change in companies. Calvert's activities may include, but are not limited to:

  • Dialogue with Companies. Calvert may initiate dialogue with management through phone calls, letters and in-person meetings. Through its interaction, Calvert seeks to learn about management’s successes and challenges and to press for improvement on issues of concern.
  • Proxy Voting. Clients typically have an opportunity each year to express their views on issues of corporate governance and sustainability at annual stockholder meetings. Calvert generally votes proxies for its clients consistent with its proxy voting guidelines. Click here or below for more information about Calvert's proxy voting.
