According to consumer survey results, when asked how they would respond to ethical, social, or environmental concerns with their investments, 85% of respondents opted to take action. Most of this group favoured continued engagement with the company through voting as the best means to address those concerns.
Based on these results, 2DII estimates that roughly 20-40 million Europeans would vote in support of the Paris Agreement. However, this level of support is not replicated in the votes cast at company general meetings by financial institutions.
