A Simplified Solution That Provides Valuable Governance Tools and Resources

SAN FRANCISCO (January 25, 2021) – Glass Lewis, the leading provider of independent global governance solutions, announces the launch of the Glass Lewis Governance Hub for Public Companies. Environmental, social, and governance (ESG) issues have taken center stage at many public companies. However, incorporating investor perspectives on these issues into tangible actions remains a challenge across many global organizations. In response to this demand, Glass Lewis is inviting public companies to leverage its one-stop hub with access to Proxy Paper research reports, easy access to industry-leading thought leadership, and shareholder communication tools like the Report Feedback Statement which enables companies to express their opinions on Glass Lewis’ analysis and voting recommendations, directly to investors.

“With significant attention on issues like board diversity and climate risk, public companies have the opportunity to create shareholder value while also improving stakeholder engagement. With the launch of the Glass Lewis Governance Hub, our goal is to help companies incorporate an improved understanding of the perspectives of their investors into their corporate ESG strategies,” stated John Wieck, Glass Lewis’ Chief Operating Officer.

Public company customers will be able to quickly access the following through the Governance Hub:

  • Proxy Paper research reports as soon as they are published.
  • Report Feedback Statement to deliver unedited opinions on Glass Lewis research and recommendations directly to Glass Lewis institutional investor customers.
  • Issuer Data Report registration to review a data-only version of their Proxy Paper research report prior to publication to ensure data accuracy. (Note: the data review program is currently applicable in North America, Europe and some Asian markets. Here is a complete list of markets covered.
  • Easy scheduling of complimentary engagement meetings with the Glass Lewis research team.
