We employ several different engagement strategies, all of which are integrated into our research and investment process, thereby linking our investment decisions with the success or failure of our company engagements. Our primary concerns are corporate actions taken at the expense of employees, environment, and community. Communications and Proxy Voting are the primary engagement strategies.
Portfolio 21's selection process seeks companies best positioned to succeed financially given the increasing challenges posed to business by human activities that extend beyond the earth's ecological limits. We believe investors can play an important role in raising awareness of environmental concerns through direct dialogue with government and community stakeholders.

Through active proxy voting, Portfolio 21 supports all beneficial environmental and corporate responsibility resolutions placed on the ballots of companies in the fund.
