Person

Bernice Schoenbaum

Bernice Schoenbaum is an individual shareholder in the utility company Dominion Energy, and is active in submitting shareholder proposals that support a left-of-center environmental, social, and governance (ESG) agenda. Schoenbaum has notably submitted shareholder resolutions relating to Dominion’s use of mountaintop removal mining (MTR), lobbying activities [1] and executive incentives that are supposedly related to “risky projects.” [2]

Groups like As You Sow and Ceres are allied with shareholders like Schoenbaum, and are responsible for coordinating many climate-related proposals submitted to oil, gas, and utility companies. [3] As You So provided supporting documents for Schoenbaum’s 2015 proposal to Dominion concerning the company’s executive compensation incentives. [4]
