Australia's Whitehaven Coal calls to reject investor resolution on climate change

Whitehaven Coal on Friday urged its shareholders to vote against a resolution at its annual general meeting that pushed for disclosing a plan annually on how it would meet certain goals of the Paris Agreement on climate change.

Australia's biggest independent coal miner called the resolution, which seeks a plan demonstrating how it would wind up its production assets and operations in a manner consistent with the goals of the Paris Agreement, a "misrepresentation".
