Green groups to use different tactic at this year’s annual meeting of BP

Briefly Noted

2002-02-07 [SolarAccess.com] Green groups will use a different tactic at this year’s annual meeting of BP oil, after trying to hijack annual meetings twice before. On April 18, shareholders will vote on a World Wildlife Fund resolution calling on the British multinational to disclose how it measures the risks to its investors of drilling in environmentally sensitive areas. WWF wants to appeal to shareholder pockets, rather than their hearts, saying shareholders should be worried about risks, which could prove to be as bad for business as they might be for animals and plants.
