Our Approach to Shareholder Engagement

Web Content Viewer


Building and managing long-term relationships based on mutual trust is vital to our strategy for corporate governance. Shareholders who invest in our company and elect the board of directors are entitled to meaningful information about the company's business, policies and practices so they can make informed decisions and knowledgeably participate in the proxy voting process.

We hope to foster more open dialogue with shareholders by offering a variety of avenues for shareholders to communicate with the Board and encouraging shareholders to contact us at any time of year. Our shareholders are able to communicate their thoughts or concerns related to executive compensation directly to the Compensation Committee via our online Executive Compensation Feedback form. Shareholders and other interested parties may communicate with the Board by letter or email.

Shareholder Vote Incentive Program

Since the inception of our Vote Incentive Program, we have sponsored the planting of nearly 860,000 trees. Our partnership with American Forests has contributed to reforestation efforts in critical ecosystems across North America including the repair of the tree canopy damaged by hurricanes in Miami and Houston and the restoration of a thorn forest in the Rio Grande Valley in Texas. Additionally, we have provided 730,000 environmentally friendly bags to our registered shareholders. Given the very favorable response by registered shareholders, visible in an increase in proxy voting, we will continue to offer voting shareholders the choice of an eco-friendly tote bag or support of conservation activities.
