Environmental Values

“A shareholder proposal to set up a board committee for environmental sustainability failed. Harrington Investments, a small firm in California’s Napa Valley, supported the plan.

“It’s extremely important that the directors recognize that sustainability, environmental sustainability, is a criteria for just about any publicly traded company on the globe,” the firm’s president, John Harrington, said at the meeting. He said Intel had adopted a similar committee.

The Microsoft board recommended rejecting the proposal, saying the company already has incorporated environmental values.”
