Types of questions received from shareholders prior to the meeting

In 2021 the topic of company performance and financial reports was the most common by holders prior to the AGM with 15.54% of questions received relating to this. There was also a focus on future direction and strategy. Again, environmental and sustainability matters were a focus at the actual meetings themselves but were not prominent in pre-received questions.
