Absa Investors Ask African Bank to Make Climate Assessment

Absa Group Ltd. shareholders agreed that the African bank should include in its reporting next year an assessment of its exposure to climate-change risk in its lending portfolios.

The company should also disclose opportunities to finance climate-change mitigation, shareholders of the Johannesburg-based lender voted at Absa’s annual general meeting. The board is not bound to comply with the vote.
