2017 Origin Energy Shareholder Resolution

If you own shares in a company, then you can have a say in what it does.

Origin Energy is one of Australia’s biggest oil and gas companies. The company is continuing to spend billions of dollars exploring for more fossil fuel reserves, even though research shows there is already more oil and gas owned by companies than can be safely burned if we are to hold global temperatures below 2 degrees Celsius of warming above pre-industrial levels.

Market Forces wants to tell the Origin board that enough is enough. We can do this by proposing resolutions at the company’s AGM.

In Australia it takes 100 plus shareholders to lodge a resolution at a company AGM. Can you join us as one of the 100?

If you are a shareholder in Origin Energy and would like to help lodge the resolutions, please complete the web form below. By doing so you will appoint a representative of Market Forces to act on your behalf for the purpose of lodging resolutions and supporting statements.

Box 222, Fitzroy, Victoria, 3065

The Shareholder Resolutions consist of a Special Resolution intended to amend the constitution of the Company to allow for an Ordinary Resolution to be put, and three Ordinary Resolutions. All four resolutions will be lodged once at least 100 shareholders have agreed to the Agency Agreement. Click on the button below to view the resolution and supporting statement.
