very different when it comes to how they
cast their votes on ESG issues. The 15 largest index
funds included in our analysis range from 9%
support to 100% support of key resolutions voted.
The largest sustainable index fund, iShares
ESG Aware MSCI USA ETF, supported only three of
the 35 key ESG resolutions it voted ( EXHIBIT 3 ).

As investors put more money into sustainable
investing strategies, the collective influence
of these strategies, via their proxy voting, also
grows. Because of their size, larger funds
have greater influence on any particular vote than
do smaller funds. We found, however, that
overall support for key ESG resolutions among the
largest sustainable funds was mixed ( EXHIBIT 4 ).
Across the dozen sustainable funds with more
than $1 billion in assets, average support for
the key resolutions was only 50%. Only three funds
exhibited 100% support, and six supported
more than half the resolutions voted. The large
funds offered by BlackRock, Dimensional,
and Vanguard voted in favor of key resolutions
only one third of the time or less.
Fund Parent Determinant
EXHIB IT 5 compares the largest sustainable funds'
support for key resolutions with that of their
parent asset manager, derived by aggregating the
key votes of all funds advised by the parent firm.

For most asset managers, voting is fairly consistent
across the funds they advise. That means
for asset managers committed to sustainable
investing, such as Calvert Research and
Management, Parnassus Investments, and Impax
Asset Management, all of their funds voted in
favor of all key ESG resolutions.
For other asset managers that advise a limited
number of sustainable funds relative to
their overall lineup, we observe lower support-
an indication that the overall voting policy of these
asset managers is less supportive of key ESG
resolutions. This explains much of the variation
in support among sustainable funds.
The votes cast by sustainable funds of only two
of the nine asset managers shown in EXHIBIT 5
differ notably from those of their parent,
American Century and Dimensional. In each case,
