The Sustainable Investments Institute (Si2), a nonprofit research organization based in Washington, D.C., conducts impartial research and publishes reports on organized efforts to influence corporate behavior on social and environmental issues. Si2 closely follows shareholder resolutions proposed by investor advocates, but does not making voting recommendations. Instead, it provides the tools and in-depth reports that enable investors to make their own informed, independent decisions on the contentious public policy issues raised during proxy season. Si2 also conducts research into emerging sustainability issues to better help investors and the general public understand the implications they hold for companies and their key stakeholders. Recent reports covered political spending, hydraulic fracturing, integrated reporting, nanotechnologies and sustainable governance issues. Si2 is supported by leading institutional investors, including public and private pension funds, college and university endowments, foundations and fund managers.
