Resolution 1


Resolution 1 - Special resolution to amend our company's constitution


To amend the constitution to insert a new clause 46:


Member resolutions at general meeting


The shareholders in a general meeting may by ordinary resolution express an opinion, ask for

information, or make a request, about the way in which a power of the company partially or exclusively

vested in the directors has been or should be exercised. However, such a resolution must relate to an

issue of material relevance to the company or the company's business as identified by the company, and cannot either advocate action which would violate any law or relate to any personal claim or grievance. Such a resolution is advisory only and does not bind the directors or the company.


Resolution 2


Resolution 2 - Ordinary resolution on company consistency with limiting warming to 1.5°C


Shareholders request that our company proactively advocate for Australian policy settings that are

consistent with the Paris Agreement's objective of limiting global warming to 1.5°C.


Nothing in this resolution should be read as limiting the Board's discretion to take decisions in the best

interests of our company.


Resolution 3


Resolution 3 - Ordinary resolution on climate accounting and audit

Shareholders request that from the 2023 financial year, the notes to our company's audited financial statements include a climate sensitivity analysis that:

·      includes a scenario aligned with limiting warming to 1.5°C,

·      presents the quantitative estimates and judgements for all scenarios used, and

·      covers all commodities.

Nothing in this resolution should be read as limiting the Board's discretion to take decisions in the best interests of our company.
