Engagement

Asking questions at general shareholders’ meetings

For almost 25 years we have been a loyal visitor to general shareholders’ meetings (AGMs). Every year, we ask critical questions to the directors of around 40 Dutch, listed companies, to promote sustainable business operations.

We ask these questions in response to a number of themes. Every year we change one theme, so that we stay up to date and gain insight into the performance of companies within a theme over several years. This year, VBDO is asking questions about climate adaptation, working conditions in the chain and diversity.
