Robyn Hugo, a director: Climate Change Engagement at Just Share, said yesterday, “We hope that these shareholders will be responsible in challenging Thungela on the misleading and inaccurate claims it makes in its first set of reports, and in applying pressure on the company to take climate risk seriously, and to urgently embark on a process of developing a robust, science-based climate strategy.”
