Abstract: The role of shareholders, and particularly of institutional investors, has shifted from a focus on shareholder rights to (also) a focus on shareholder duties. For instance, under SRD II, institutional investors need to develop and publicly disclose their engagement policy, describing how they integrate shareholder engagement in their investment strategy. The emphasis on institutional investors’ duties stems from the premise that these investors can steer companies and enhance long-term value creation and non-financial performance. This draft research forms the first step of a four-years Veni project to investigate the role of Dutch institutional investors in sustainability and aims at getting to know the Dutch institutional investors’ landscape, their preferences and their use of different available engagement tools.
