As You Sow recently released a new web tool designed to let investors look up their mutual funds and find the fossil fuel stocks hidden within. You can find the tool here.

As You Sow is a non-profit foundation chartered to promote corporate social responsibility (for example on human rights) through shareholder advocacy, coalition building, and legal strategies, founded in 1992. As You Sow’s programs utilise shareholder advocacy to pressure companies to adopt responsible policies. According to As You Sow, “Shareholder advocacy leverages the power of stock ownership in publicly traded companies to promote environmental, social, and governance change from within.”
