Greener oil firms?

It is not every day that a surfer and environmental campaigner addresses the annual general meeting of one of the world's biggest oil companies.
But that is what happened earlier this year, when Australian Heath Joske spoke to shareholders of the Norwegian firm Equinor at its AGM in the city of Stavanger.

Is this what it takes?

I just googled it on the BBC.

He implored them to back a resolution, brought by a small group of investors, to stop Equinor's plans to drill for oil in the Great Australian Bight - a stretch of coastline in South Australia said to be one of the most unspoiled marine environments in the world.
Oil-and-gas extraction posed huge risks to local wildlife and the climate, says Mr Joske, who lives in the region.
"We see your plans to drill in the Bight as a direct threat to our culture and identity," he told the meeting.

We all understand that companies have to make profits for their shareholders so if shareholders were onside then it could be a successful plan.

It could be good news if society changed just a little for the good of all.
