2020 Guide to Effective Proxies 
Interest on the part of a broad range of investors and other stakeholders in Environmental, Social & Governance (ESG) issues, Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), and company sustainability continues to intensify. Similarly, Human Capital Management (HCM) increasingly is considered a significant driver of company value and success.

COVID-19 and its aftermath continue to shine a spotlight on certain of these issues. Depending on a company’s sector and business model, these include employee health and safety, supply chain and effective board oversight.

Investors want to understand the ESG-related risks and opportunities facing their portfolio companies, and how “sustainable” are these companies and thus the value of their investment. They seek decision-useful, quantitative information on ESG elements that are material for a given company, and for evidence of board-level governance over this process.
