MCDONALD'S CORPORATION | Advisory vote on adoption of antibiotic policy (2) at MCDONALD'S CORPORATION
Previous AGM date
How other organisations have declared their voting intentions
|Organisation name||Declared voting intentions||Rationale|
|Anima Sgr||For||The industry trends point towards an increased compliance with the recommended phasing-out of antimicrobials in animal-related food production, given documented evidence that their routine use contributes to the growing problem of global antibiotic resistance. Therefore, a lack of full compliance with internationally recognized standards in this area could potentially expose McDonald's to material risks as the environment around this issue continues to evolve. Stronger policies and more comprehensive disclosures on antibiotics use would help address risks related to changing consumer preferences, reputational damage, health concerns, and potential future regulation.|
|AP7||For||By changing its policies and adhering to the WHO Guidelines, McDonald’s would mitigate a significant supply chain risk, contribute to a more resilient economy, and protect the interests of diversified investors.|
|Rothschild & co Asset Management||For|
|Wesleyan Assurance Society||For||AMR poses a significant risk to public health. Whilst McDonald's has some measures in place to manage AMR within their supply chain, we believe more closely following WHO guidelines would help reduce the level of risk to the company and society overall.|
