Re agenda item 5: Resolution on the discharge of the members of Uniper SE’s Management Board for financial year 2019
Ethical Shareholders Germany moves not to discharge the members of the Management Board.
Reasons: The Management Board of Uniper SE does not meet the requirements of the Paris Climate Change Convention and the UN’s guiding principles for business and human rights. Uniper’s central business model, power generation using the fossil fuels coal and gas, makes a decisive contribution to climate change.

As Bayer takes advantages of the new german shareholder participation laws in times of Corona‘s social distancing, for us, who we are human rights activists, this year it is not possible to take an active part in Bayer‘s AGM to criticize Bayer‘s directory board directly as we did the last decades. But, nonetheless our critic is more important than ever. So, here we go:
Press Release of 28 civil society organizations, including Ethical Shareholders Germany
EU Regulation on the responsible supply of tin, tungsten, tantalum and
gold (3TG) from conflict-affected and high-risk areas (CAHRA) is a
crucial first step towards supply chains free from human rights abuse.
The EU Regulation on the responsible supply of tin, tungsten, tantalum
and gold (3TG) from conflict-affected and high-risk areas (CAHRA) was
approved in 2017 and will enter into force in 2021. Before this date,
the EU member states need to adopt measures to ensure the implementation
of the Regulation. However, the first implementation measures being
discussed by member states risk diluting the efficacy of the Regulation
by concealing the list of companies subjected to it. Weiterlesen

My name is
Varsha, I am 17 years old and an organiser for School Strike for Climate
Australia. Since I was born, CO2 has risen from around 313 ppm to 407 ppm. It’s
scary to know that without urgent emission reductions, we could reach a point
of no return in just 10 years – when I will be 27.

died, over 2000 homes have been turned into ash and more than a billion animals
have been killed. Weiterlesen

Mr Kaeser, we were born in the same year. 1957. When I was a young woman and wanted to travel, I was told that the world would always be there. There was no rush. How times have changed for the youth of today and tomorrow.
In the four and a half years my husband and I have been operating two boats in the Whitsundays in the Great Barrier Reef, entire bays full of coral and fish have been wiped out by Cyclone Debbie – one of the strongest cyclones we’ve ever experienced. Cyclones are getting stronger and more intense because of climate change. Weiterlesen

Dear Sirs and madams, Dear managing board and supervisory board,
My name is
Khadja Bedati, I speak for the Sahrawi Youth and the Association of ethical shareholders.
This is not
the first time that I criticize Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy’s wind turbines
in the Moroccan-occupied Western Sahara, which were erected without the consent
of the Sahrawi people. Last year, Mr Kaeser, you referred me to Siemens Gamesa
and promised answers that I have not yet received. I am asking you for those
answers today, you cannot continue to hide behind your subsidiary, in which you
are the majority shareholder with a 67% stake. Weiterlesen

Agenda Item 3: To ratify the acts of the members of the Managing Board
of the acts of the members of the Managing Board shall be denied.
Managing Board of Siemens AG is not sufficiently fulfilling its responsibility
with regard to developing more effective climate protection measures. Measures
to date are not sufficient to make a contribution towards reaching the goals of
the Paris Agreement or the UN’s 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development to
which Siemens AG is committed.
Participation in the Adani Mine contradicts previous climate protection
decision to supply rail signaling technology for the planned Adani coal mine in
Australia is an example of the lack of awareness for the problems associated
with participating in climate damaging projects. Weiterlesen

45 NGOs from around the world stand by our friends in Russia. Stop the criminalisation of human rights and environment defenders!
Ecodefense is one of the oldest environmental groups in Russia, founded in 1989 in Kaliningrad. It works in various regions of Russia including Moscow, Kaliningrad and Siberia (Kuzbass) and has already successfully stopped nuclear power plants and coal mines.
In 2014 the Russian government officially labeled Ecodefense as a “foreign agent”, because the organisation convinced a number of investors from Europe not to invest in a nuclear plant near Kaliningrad, which stopped the plant’s construction in mid-2013.
The Russian Ministry of Justice initiated 28 legal (administrative) cases against Ecodefense for non-compliance with the law, leading to fines totaling Euro 30,000, which the organization did not pay until now. Weiterlesen
