What is SHAREHOLDER RESOLUTION? What does SHAREHOLDER RESOLUTION mean? SHAREHOLDER RESOLUTION meaning - SHAREHOLDER RESOLUTION definition - SHAREHOLDER RESOLUTION explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. With respect to public companies in the United States, Shareholder resolutions are proposals submitted by shareholders for a vote at the company's annual meeting. Typically, resolutions are opposed by the corporation's management, hence the insistence for a vote. For publicly held corporations in the United States, the submission and handling of resolutions is regulated by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). Shareholders submit resolutions dealing primarily with corporate governance, such as executive compensation, or corporate social responsibility issues, such as global warming, labor relations, tobacco smoking, human rights, and animal welfare. Virtually all shareholder resolutions are non-binding (or "precatory," to use the legal term of art). In this sense the voting on these resolutions more closely resembles a poll than it does a (binding) referendum or plebiscite. Still, media coverage of voting on shareholder resolutions tends to focus on whether the proposal received a majority of votes, which occurs in a very small but increasing proportion of cases. According to SEC rules, defeated resolutions may be resubmitted only if they pass certain election hurdles (percentage of affirmative votes). Shareholder resolutions have been an important part of activist campaigns in several cases. For example, resolutions were effective at raising public awareness and thereby pressuring corporate management about investments in apartheid South Africa, nuclear power, and labor disputes. Given these results, resolutions have been spearheaded by several coordinating groups, including the AFL-CIO and the Interfaith Center on Corporate Responsibility. Governmental and labor union pension funds also have become involved in supporting and submitting shareholder resolutions. A shareholder resolution to protest napalm manufacturer Dow Chemical resulted in a U.S. Supreme Court case called SEC v. MEDICAL COMMITTEE FOR HUMAN RIGHTS, 404 U.S. 403 (1972). The court decided that the case was moot due to Dow's agreeing to include the resolution on its proxy statement. The dissent argument by Justice Douglas encourages the SEC to facilitate more shareholder resolutions. "The philosophy of our times, I think, requires that such enterprises be held to a higher standard than that of the "morals of the marketplace" which exalts a single-minded, myopic determination to maximize profits as the traditional be-all and end-all of corporate concern."

Japanese/Nat The incoming President of Japan's second largest bank, Dai-ichi Kangyo told shareholders Friday that the bank will never again be involved with racketeers. A record number of 2-thousand 355 listed and unlisted companies held their annual shareholders' meetings across Japan on Friday. The high concentration of shareholders' meetings in one day continued this year amid controversy over the nature of the meetings and the interests of shareholders in connection with a payoff scandal involving Nomura Securities Co. and Dai-Ichi Kangyo Bank (D-K-B). Dai-ichi Kangyo bank depositors protesting outside the annual general meeting Friday, angry at the bank's pay-off scandal to racketeers. Scores of police guarded the bank's headquarters to prevent racketeers from disrupting the shareholder meeting. D-K-B and Nomura securities are accused of having provided a huge amount of profits to a "sokaiya" corporate racketeer to prevent other racketeers from blackmailing the companies by disturbing the meetings. Facing criticism against their closed meetings, the brokerage and the bank opened the meetings to the public. Shareholders welcomed the move. SOUNDBITE: (Japanese) "The whole scandal annoyed us. I am afraid that all the money we saved at the bank might evaporates as a result. If that happens, we will have to go find a new bank. I am attending the meeting today. I'd like to tell the management people that they have to run their business properly." SUPER CAPTION: Vox Pop, D-K-B shareholder SOUNDBITE: (Japanese) "I hope the bank will overcome the scandal quickly and become a trustworthy bank as they used to be. SUPER CAPTION: D-K-B shareholder One shareholder asked the bank whether it will continue its relationship with racketeers. SOUNDBITE: (Japanese) "With this newly formed management system, we are very much determined to break off relationship with them (racketeers) from now on." SUPER CAPTION: Katsuyuki Sugita, newly appointed president of D-K-B Nomura made public shareholders' questions and its executives' answers at the shareholders' meeting via the Internet, while D-K-B allowed reporters to watch its meeting on TV monitors. Nomura and D-K-B vowed to cut ties with sokaiya corporate racketeers in the wake of the payoff scandal, in which four Nomura and 10 D-K-B executives have been arrested. Police say they are first investigating the companies before moving in on the racketeers. SOUNDBITE: (Japanese) "As a result, it will be impossible to eliminate these racketeers unless we couple our efforts to crack down on them with simultaneous actions against the Mafia that back them up." SUPER CAPTION: Kazuo Miyamoto, Director of Second Organised Crime Control Division, National Police Agency A record number of 2-thousand 355 listed and unlisted companies held their annual shareholders' meetings across Japan Friday. The total exceeds the previous record marked last year by 114 and represents 88 percent of all companies scheduled to hold their shareholders' meetings in June.

Invest in an ESG benchmark index Positive screening. Establish a criteria before an investment is included in a portfolio Negative screening. Exclude companies on the basis of ESG performance. UN Global Compact: Human Rights International Labour Organisation (no child labour) Environmental issues No to bribery and corruption Trustees feel SRI implementation is too difficult and that it goes against their mandate of sole responsibility of maximising investment returns. Some critics say that negative screening is not consistent with Modern Portfolio Theory as it limits the investment universe thus lowering diversification, but benefits of diversification are marginal and fall rapidly. Most important issue is if negative screening causes a big deviation from benchmark, if a tobacco company like BAT is one of the biggest in the index. Others believe business should stick to doing business. Trustees must: instruct managers to take SRI into account instruct managers to engage with firms in which they invest Independent non-executive directors may not be considered independent the longer they hold their position Factors pushing ESG into the mainstream Nexus between ESG issues and financial performance Stakeholder activism Reputational concerns Consumer pressure and public opinion Pressure from research bodies Pressure from insurance industries Introduction of corporate environmental reporting obligations Rise of the global company Adoption of investment guidelines by the World Bank Growing corporate Transparency IT revolution Social Media pressure Regulation mandating disclosure of ESG investment policies Traits Discipline Transparency Independence Accountability Appropriate behaviour Fairness Social responsibility Good stakeholder relations Communication and disclosure Effective leadership Financial and economic performance Respect for shareholder’s rights Meeting stakeholder obligations Embracing challenges of their business environment

Last year, Reynolds completed its $25bn takeover of US rival Lorillard. The combined company was forced to sell off a number of brands, including Kool, Salem and Winston, to satisfy regulators. They were eventually bought by Britain's Imperial Tobacco for $7.1bn.

oin us in Winston Salem on May 3 as we rally and march for justice for tobacco farmworkers! For over 4 years FLOC has asked Reynolds American to meet with the farmworkers who harvest their tobacco to discuss how to put an end to the human rights abuses occurring in NC tobacco fields. While Reynolds continues business as usual, farmworkers continue suffer from dangerous and inhumane working and living conditions. Reynolds is also a corporate sponsor of ALEC, and Reynolds exec David Powers sits on ALEC's corporate board. Reynolds made nearly 1.5 billion dollars last year in profits while most farmworkers live in poverty. Last year, Reynolds CEO Daniel Delen made 8.5 million dollars. At the same time the company was raking in billions, it also slashed thousands of jobs from it's processing plants in Winston Salem, leaving thousands of hard working families without a paycheck. Tell Reynolds it's time to take responsibility for it's actions and it's supply chain. We will not stand by as Reynolds turns a blind eye to human rights abuses, puts profit over people, and supports anti-worker, anti-immigrant corporations like ALEC. Our presence at Reynolds' Shareholders Meeting is crucial. It's our time to go face to face with Reynolds executives and tell them we demand justice.

Investing made simple: The Motley Fool's essential guide to investing is now available to the public, free of cost, at http://bit.ly/1atRpHZ. This resource was designed to cover everything that new investors need to know to get started today. For your free copy, just click the link above. ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Much change has come to the cigarette industry over the past few years, with the advent of e-cigarettes, Europe moving to ban menthol cigarettes, and the FDA in the U.S. considering a similar move. Add into that mix the continuing decline in smoking rates in the U.S., and tobacco investors are left wondering whether their investments are sound in today's changing climate. In this video, host Mark Reeth and Motley Fool analyst Mike Finarelli take a look at Altria (NYSE: MO), and why the biggest tobacco company is still a great bet for income investors. Mike discusses the brands under Altria's umbrella, and the powerful cash flow that lets the company be extremely shareholder-friendly in terms of capital distributions. Despite this being a difficult industry to grow in for Altria, Mike points to the brand strength that gives the company the pricing power to offset declining volume, and notes that the company should continue to be a great holding for income for a long time to come.
