TotalEnergies’ boss re-appointed to board, approved by around 76 percent of shareholder votes

PARIS (Reuters) – Patrick Pouyanne, chairman and chief executive of French oil major TotalEnergies, was re-appointed to the company’s board by around 76 percent of shareholder votes, according to the result of a vote at TotalEnergies’ annual general meeting.

That compared to 77.4 percent of shareholder votes which had voted to approve Pouyanne’s re-appointment to the board, when that resolution was last put to a vote in 2021.

The meeting on Friday also approved, by 79.72 percent of votes, TotalEnergies’ climate strategy progress report. Last year, TotalEnergies’ climate strategy was approved with 88.76% of votes.
