Voting on women and pay at company AGMs

At the Central Finance Board I have been working on revising our AGM voting policy.  We have voted shares at company AGMs for many years, under templates I have written with colleagues.  Our latest move has been to take a firmer line in promoting the appointment of more women to boards, and alos encouraging companies to disclose their carbon emissions.

These measures are on top of a firm line we take on executive pay.  We also encourage companies to pay the living wage.

The Church Times covered the latest moves last week, here.
