Amazon faces an enormous slate of shareholder proposals for the first time – CNN

Amazon received more resolutions than any other company this year, according to a count by Alliance Advisors. Although a few were either withdrawn by their proponents or excluded with the permission of the Securities and Exchange Commission, shareholders still will vote on 12 measures at Amazon’s annual general meeting on Wednesday, on issues ranging from food waste to hate speech.

Nine of the resolutions were coordinated by the Interfaith Center on Corporate Responsibility, a coalition of about 300 institutional investors that press their portfolio companies to take action on human rights, gender and racial diversity, and the environment. The group decided to focus on Amazon after finding that many members had been frustrated over the years in attempting to engage the company through less confrontational means.
