          We track changes in behavior resulting from our engagement efforts. Where shareholder proposals proceed to a vote, we also track voting results.
        

04.5. Additional information. [Optional]

We have four broad measures of success that we apply to our engagements. Shareholder proposals can be considered successful when they acheive strong votes. Engagements can also be successful if they draw attention to problematic corporate practices, say through generating press coverage of shareholder concerns. They can be successful when they create space for the Foundation's partners, grantees and allies to raise concerns directly with a company. In turn, each of these measures of success feed into the ultimate objective of our engagement work, which is to increase transparency and change problematic corporate behavior.
