Previous AGM date
How other organisations have declared their voting intentions
|Organisation name||Declared voting intentions||Rationale|
|Anima Sgr||For||Shareholders would benefit from officially adopting a policy that would phase-out use of these antibiotics in light of current industry and regulatory trends. Indeed, there are growing public health concerns about the use of medically-important antibiotics in the animal farming industry, as this practice has been found, by regulatory and research bodies, to facilitate the development and spread of drug-resistant pathogens. Furthermore, consumer interest in the conditions under which food is grown, produced, and processed seems to be increasing. Finally, a number of McDonalds' peers in the fast-food industry have adopted policies eliminating or phasing out the use of medically important antibiotics for growth promotion and disease prevention purposes in their supply chains.|
