No longer just shareholders who have their say

Financial Times: Letters: No longer just shareholders who have their say

Friday 1 July 2005

From Mr Tony Juniper.

Sir, Once again Shell seems to have got its facts wrong (Letters, June 30). Friends of the Earth did not pay for community representatives to travel to this year’s Shell annual meeting as Sir Mark Moody-Stuart claims.

Perhaps if he, and others from Shell, were to spend more time talking to and meeting people in the communities where they work, then these people would not feel the need to attend the AGMs.

Because stakeholders are not listened to by Shell or by other big companies, their options for making their concerns known are limited. That is why it is time the UK government amended company law to ensure that affected communities are given rights and it is no longer just shareholders who have their say.

Tony Juniper, Executive Director, Friends of the Earth, London N1 7JQ
