NorthStar Asset Management has withdrawn a resubmitted proposal at American Water Works given a technical problem. It asked for a report, “tracking our Company’s impacts and responses on the human right to water and sanitation.” It raised general questions but also a specific concern about its operations in West Virginia and California. A similar proposal earned 13.7 percent in 2018.
At Chevron, the Sisters of St. Francis of Philadelphia is asking for a report “on the company’s due diligence process to identify and address risks related to the Human Right to Water throughout its operations.” It says the report should:
Outline the human right to water impacts of Chevron’s business activities, including company-owned operations and value chain;
Explain the types and extent of stakeholder consultation; and
Address Chevron’s plans to track effectiveness of measures to assess, prevent, mitigate, and remedy adverse impacts on the human right to water.
