Information for Whole Foods Market Shareholders Regarding our 2016 Shareholder Proposal
JANUARY 22, 2016: Trillium Asset Management has published a letter to shareholders of Whole Foods Market (NASDAQ: WFM) urging them to vote in favor of our Food Waste shareholder proposal on the company’s 2016 proxy card. The letter provides an overview of the importance of the issue as well as the four main reasons why we believe shareholders should vote for this proposal, which was co-filed by First Affirmative Financial Network and Green Century Capital Management.
Briefly, shareholders request Whole Foods Market issue a report by August 1, 2016, at reasonable cost and omitting proprietary information, on company-wide efforts (above and beyond its existing reporting) to assess, disclose, reduce and optimally manage food waste.
