Progress-Werk Oberkirch AG: Virtual Annual General Meeting of PWO approves all items on the agenda with large majority

on May 13, 2022.

Another key point of the report of the Executive Board was the ongoing rapid implementation of PWO?s sustainability strategy. Sustainability is the foundation for the ongoing development of all our business processes. We have prepared a challenging roadmap for this. As a company that operates within the mobility industry entirely independently of internal combustion engines, we are excellently positioned to align all our resources towards shaping our future.

In the middle of April 2022, we had announced that he had joined the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) in order to reduce our carbon emissions in line with climate science findings. We have since resolved our ambitious Group-wide carbon reduction targets. We have sent these to the SBTi together with the measures for achieving them. By 2030, based on the benchmark year of 2019, we are aiming to reduce our own greenhouse gas emissions (Scope 1 and Scope 2 according to the Greenhouse Gas Protocol) by 46% and Scope 3 emissions, i.e. those referring to the upstream and downstream supply chain, by 28%. We are thus on the right path towards making our contribution to achieving the goals of the Paris Agreement.

We are counting on sustainability in all three dimensions ? environmental, social, governance. We want to be a force for good for society, while at the same time increasing the value of the PWO Group.

Besides detailed question on individual accounting items, the questions submitted by shareholders prior to the Annual General Meeting related in particular to current developments in the supply chain and at the production site Oberkirch, the customer and order structure, the growth and sustainability strategy as well as the remuneration system.

The full Annual General Meeting was livestreamed on the Internet for shareholders and guests.
