The importance of shareholder activism follows along with our global trends for change. In recent years, Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) issues have become a key focus of many companies and increasingly for many shareholders who want to ensure their investments are also doing "good" in the world. Influence, particularly when money is involved, can be a major driver for a course of action. While shareholder activism can focus on any number of topics that may call for change within companies, ESG and sustainability courses of action are increasing focus areas. As we face the climate crisis, we can influence companies to make changes to align with global concerns for our climate and people.
