Why Shareholder Activism?

Tisha Schuller sits down with Danielle Fugere, President of As You Sow to learn about shareholder activism from the activist perspective. Shareholder resolutions are increasingly successful in pushing oil and gas companies to address climate concerns on activist terms. To meet the incoming challenges, oil and gas leaders must both build an understanding of the activist perspective, and develop an engagement strategy.

In today’s episode, Tisha and Danielle discuss:

  • The drivers behind shareholder advocacy
  • How oil and gas companies can engage constructively with shareholder activists
  • What to expect next from future shareholder resolutions

Danielle assumed the role of President of As You Sow in 2012 and continues to serve today. She has served in leadership roles for environmental advocacy organizations since 1995 including Environmental Advocates, Friends of the Earth, and the Environmental Law Foundation. Danielle holds a J.D. from the Berkeley School of Law and a degree in political economics from the University of California, Berkeley.
