Just Share is a non-profit shareholder activism and responsible investment organisation that promotes the use of investor power for a fairer South Africa.

Our vision is of an investment system in which shareholder power is effectively deployed to ensure that companies are continuously challenged to be good corporate citizens, contributing to a just and equal society and a healthy environment.

Our mission is to advance responsible investment and stimulate active ownership to reduce inequality, prevent environmental degradation and accelerate the transition to a low-carbon economy by:

  • Building partnerships with and enhancing collaboration between institutional investors, civil society, and individual savers.
  • Providing meaningful environmental, social and governance information to investors.
  • Supporting and initiating shareholder activism.
  • Connecting the lived realities of ordinary South Africans with the decisions of the investor community.

Q&A with Just Share – SA’s new Shareholder Activist Organisation
