Samsung Electronics Reduces Paper Waste at Shareholders’ Meeting…Enhanced ESG grafting
Samsung Electronics announced on the 9th that it is pushing for a general shareholders’ meeting incorporating ESG ahead of the 54th regular shareholders’ meeting to be held on the 15th of this month.
Samsung Electronics did not send any mail to the general shareholders’ meeting, which consisted of attendance letters, convocation notices, and shareholders’ correspondence, but replaced it with electronic announcements on the electronic disclosure system (DART) and Samsung Electronics’ website.
Mail shipments to minority shareholders were simplified from seven sheets per shareholder in 2021 to a general shareholders’ meeting attendance letter and simple notice last year, and all of them were replaced by electronic announcements this year.
This will save about 35 million sheets of paper, and it is expected to protect about 3,000 30-year-old trees, the company stressed.
In addition, Samsung Electronics is planning to introduce major ESG activities and prepare places to reflect on its perception of eco-friendliness at the shareholders’ meeting. An eco-package experience space will be operated where participants can assemble eco-packages that upcycle product packaging boxes as daily props.
Meanwhile, Sam-sung Electronics will hold a regular shareholders’ meeting at the Suwon Convention Center in Gyeonggi-do on the 15th and present an agenda for *approval of financial statements * appointment of in-house directors * approval of directors’ remuneration limit.
Shareholders can exercise their voting rights on each bill through electronic voting until 5 p.m. on the 14th on the electronic voting system of the Korea Securities Depository even if they do not attend the shareholders’ meeting in person. 코인파워볼
