Climate-Friendly Investing Policy

The Clark Committee on Shareholder Responsibility will:

  • Consider all shareholder resolutions presented to Clark that ask the University to vote in favor of actions designed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
  • Vote favorably for all such resolutions that are reasonably presented, and for which reasonable people would agree that the actions to be taken would serve in the long term interests of the University as shareholders.
  • For any such resolutions not supported, write a letter of explanation to management, indicating Clark's general support for reducing such emissions by portfolio companies, and indicating the reasons for our vote against (or not for) the specific resolution.
  • Communicate not less than annually the outcomes of such a policy
