On April 16, Ernst & Young released its report on investors’ opinions on sustainability reporting titled: How Today’s Investors Are Framing Conversations on Corporate Sustainability. The report found that 45 percent of all shareholder proposals in 2013 through April 1 focused on environmental and social issues, particularly employee diversity, sustainability reports, and oversight of political spending and lobbying. The report also found that the average shareholder voting support for environmental and social proposals was at 19 percent in 2012, up from 10 percent in 2005. A quarter of the proposals received at least 30 percent support which is the level at which many boards take note of an issue.
