How can investors support oil majors to fight the climate crisis?

2022 focus: pattern on voting behavior

While the investor community is deciding what good climate commitment looks like from oil majors and how they will vote on crucial climate resolutions, Follow This will convene its yearly international investment symposium. The goal of the symposium is to discuss how shareholders can support oil and gas companies to contribute to the targets of the Paris Climate Agreement. Specifically, we will zoom in on patterns in voting behavior of big investors. 

The symposium will bring together investors, the oil and gas industry, academics and media to discuss how investors can support oil and gas companies to take a leading role in tackling climate change.

Prepare for the oil majors’ next AGM season in 1.5 hours? Please register your attendance with [email protected] or via the registration form above.

We are pleased to announce the confirmed speakers:

  • Professor Detlef van Vuuren (Utrecht University and IPCC) will outline what emissions reductions we need to achieve to reach Paris and touch on new insights from Working Group III.
  • Anne Lafarre (Tilburg University) will illuminate her research on investor voting behavior and ideology.
  • Mary Minette (Mercy Investments and CA100+) will paint a picture of her perspective on engagement and voting concerning the oil majors.
  • Roger Cox (Paulussen Advocaten), will talk about the legal risks for oil majors and their shareholders, if they do not achieve Paris-consistent emission reductions by 2030.
  • Hilde Røed (Equinor) will talk about Equinor’s role in the energy transition.
  • Lars Dijkstra (Van Lanschot Kempen) will illustrate why he thinks it is the duty of investors to make the oil and gas sector aware of the risks and opportunities that climate change entails and what role active engagement plays in this.
  • Mark van Baal (Follow This) will talk about trends concerning the votes for the Follow This climate resolutions. 

We are currently discussing with an oil major and another investor about their participation in the event. An update will be sent when these are confirmed.
