More than a dozen current and former employees of the tech giant Amazon submitted identical shareholder proposals requesting the company to reduce its dependence on fossil fuels.  The proposal, submitted in november of 2018, will be voted on in Spring 2019 and asks the company’s board “how it would respond to climate change and reduce its dependence on fossil fuels.”  To be eligible to admit such a proposal, shareholders must own at least $2,000 in stock for a minimum of one year.
