Fracking and finance: can investor-activism reshape energy g

English

Abstract: Shareholder resolutions—usually non-binding requests to corporations for changes to environmental, social, and governance practices—have taken on new significance as financial actors gain increased power in commodity chains. With a focus on shareholder resolutions on hydraulic fracturing in the US, I argue that these investor actions are part of a suite of coordinated and adaptive activist strategies to shape environmental governance from within.
