Shareholder activists gun for Sasol and its 'climate lobbying'
Shareholder activist group Just Share is putting pressure on Sasol to come clean about climate lobbying.
“You can expect pressure to build on big polluters in the year ahead, especially those connected to coal,” said The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield.
“Sasol is also going to come under the microscope.”
Whitfield interviewed Tracey Davies, Director at Just Share (scroll up to listen).
