·     Helping to develop guidance, tools and strategies to support investor action, including company resolutions on climate lobbying.

·     Assisting investors in drafting proxy memos and other documents supporting corporate engagements.

·     Developing strategic connections with partners, including other investors and investor networks, and NGOs.
