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

previous speakers I will also deliver this speech in English and then there
will be a German translation.
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.
has suffered an unprecedented bushfire crisis this summer. We have faced walls of flames over 70 metres
high. Our biggest cities have been blanketed in hazardous smoke, 35 people have
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

Ladies and Gentlemen, Dear Management Board and Supervisory Board,
My name is
Khadja Bedati, I speak for the Saharawi Youth and Ethical Shareholders Germany.
Last year, at
the Annual General Meeting, I raised the issue of the cement factory in the
Moroccan-occupied areas of Western Sahara.
commendable, Dr. Scheifele, that you are in favour of a peaceful and consensual
solution to the Western Sahara conflict. You have acknowledged that Ciments du
Maroc has built two grinding plants in the area whose international legal
status has not been clarified, and that a referendum on this very issue is
still pending. Weiterlesen

Good morning and thank you for the opportunity to participate in your AGM. I am Johannes Seoka, former Bishop of the Anglican Church in Diocese of Pretoria in the Anglican Church of South Africa for 18 years. I am here representing and speaking on behalf of the Plough Back the Fruits Campaign constituted by South African, European and British network.
Last year Mr Bock cynically asked me not to come back this year. In fact, this is the major reason of being here today. I must say that though I was offended by his attitude, I decided to be forgiving and to be optimistic about our relationship for the sake of those who have entrusted me with the responsibility to speak on their behalf.
