Resolved clause
Shareholders request the Company to set and publish medium- and
long-term targets to substantially reduce the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions of
the Company’s operations and energy products (Scope 1, 2, and 3).
Supporting statement
The policies of energy companies - the largest greenhouse gas (GHG) emitters - are crucial to confronting the climate crisis. Therefore shareholders support oil and gas companies to substantially reduce their emissions. We, the shareholders, understand this support to be essential in protecting all our assets in the global economy from devastating climate change. We therefore support the Company to set emission reduction targets for all emissions: the emissions of the company’s operations and the emissions of its energy products (Scope 1, 2, and 3). Reducing Scope 3 emissions, the vast majority, is essential to limiting global heating.
