LPPI's service provider makes voting recommendations in line with Sustainability Proxy Voting Guidelines. These are designed for investors who are concerned with ensuring their shareholder voting aligns with an active ownership approach focussed on portfolio value preservation and the consideration and incorporation of sustainability (ESG) factors.

The RI team at LPPI review the voting recommendations made by the proxy voting provider for upcoming company meetings and take the final decision on the direction of voting.

LPPI has a watch list for company meetings due to receive significant resolutions (for example on climate change) and will review the provider's voting recommendation in detail for flagged meetings.

Where a decision is taken to divert from the provider's voting recommendation, the rationale for doing so is recorded on the voting platform in order to be available for vote reporting purposes and future reference.

LPPI's Service provider makes voting recommendations in line with Sustainability Proxy Voting Guidelines which are designed for investors concerned with ensuring active ownership, portfolio value preservation and the incorporation of sustainability (ESG) factors is carried through into their proxy voting activity.

The Sustainability policy seeks to promote support for recognized global governing bodies which are promoting sustainable business practices, advocating for stewardship of the environment, fair labour practices, non-discrimination, and the protection of human rights.

The policy takes as its frame of reference internationally recognized sustainability-related initiatives such as 

  • United Nations Environment Programme Finance Initiative (UNEP FI)
  • Principles for Responsible Investment (UNPRI)
  • United Nations Global Compact, Global Reporting Initiative (GRI),
  • Carbon Principles,
  • International Labour Organization Conventions (ILO),
  • CERES Principles,
  • Global Sullivan Principles,
  • MacBride Principles,
  • environmental and social European Union Directives

On matters of corporate governance, executive compensation, and corporate structure, the Sustainability Policy guidelines are based on a commitment to create and preserve economic value and to advance principles of good corporate governance.

The shareholder proposal was rejected by the company following a successful application for no action relief from the SEC and did not make it onto the ballot for the 2019 AGM.

LPPI supported all remaining votable climate-related resolutions at the Exxon 2019 AGM.

LEA 21. Examples of (proxy) voting activities

21.1. 報告年度に貴社またはサービスプロバイダーが実行した(委任状による)議決権行使の例を提供してください。

Company leadership issues|Other governance

LPPI sought to hold directors accountable for significant material weaknesses in company internal controls.  


LPPI voted against the re-election of the CFO and incumbent audit committee members at a Diversified Chemicals company due to material failures in internal controls relating to the construction of a new petrochemicals complex that led to substantial additional cost.

Executive Remuneration

Executive remuneration incentives are well balanced between short- and long-term pay, incentivising performance against the company's key drivers for long-term success.


LPPI voted against 19% of management proposed resolutions on remuneration and supported 57% of shareholder resolutions relating to remuneration in 2019.


LPPI voted against a resolution on the implementation of the remuneration policy at an industrial conglomerate.

The CEO received a significant increase to fixed pay without sufficient explanation, during a handover period to the CEO-designate.

Human rights

Companies place adequate focus upon identifying and addressing adverse human rights impacts in their operations and supply chains.


In 2019, LPPI supported 85% of shareholder resolutions related to improving corporate action on human rights issues.

Each resolution was evaluated on its merits, case-by-case.


At an apparel retailer, greater transparency was sought on the company's processes for identifying and assessing human rights risks in its operations and supply chain. LPPI supported a resolution seeking better and more detailed disclosure of the information needed by shareholders to gauge how well the company is managing human rights related risks.


Diversity within management, the Board and workforce can have a positive effect on long-term value creation and reduce the likelihood of litigation resulting from discrimination affecting the company's bottom line and reputation.

Where it can be provided without undue burden to the company, reasonable disclosure of information on diversity characteristics and activities underway to promote and ensure diversity are of value to shareholders. 


In 2019 LPPI supported 83% of shareholder resolutions relating to diversity and voted against management in 25 instances where board nominations failed to address an inadequacy in board diversity.


LPPI supported a resolution at an electronic components manufacturer requesting the company to provide enhanced reporting on its diversity policies. Whilst the vote failed to pass by a slim margin, the company subsequently published the requested report.


Climate Change

Climate change poses significant financial risks to companies globally. The production and disclosure of metrics on operational carbon intensity and on targets for future greenhouse gas emissions reductions are needed by shareholders as a basis for assessing the effectiveness of the Board's governance of climate change risk management.


LPPI supported 77% of climate-related resolutions in 2019.


At an industrial machinery manufacturer, LPPI supported a resolution to adopt a policy on the adoption of time-bound, quantitative emissions reductions targets.

At energy companies, LPPI supported resolutions to

  • set and publish greenhouse gas emissions reduction targets
  • report on mitigating the health and climate impacts of coal use
  • report on plans to reduce carbon footprints and align with Paris Agreement goals
  • Approve reduction targets for future fossil fuel exposure
