RWE : seeks dialogue with shareholder Amundi after criticism over coal exit

RWE said on Friday it would seek dialogue with investor Amundi, which criticised the speed of its plans to move away from fossil fuels.

"We will seek discussions (with Amundi) to explain our clearly mapped out withdrawal from coal," a spokesman for RWE said after a letter that Amundi had written to RWE management circulated.

Amundi, which holds 1.3% of RWE shares, said in a letter seen by Reuters that it saw RWE "at odds" with Paris Climate Targets as it intends to keep some brown coal plants running until 2038.

It demanded RWE provide a coal phase-out plan "fully compliant with the recommendations of climate science".

Shares in RWE, which is Europe's biggest CO2 polluter, lost 1.3% on Friday to close at 31.48 euros.

Environmentalists protested at mining sites in the Rhineland and eastern German Lusatia, as Germany prepares to pass a coal exit law next week, from which RWE stands to gain 2.6 billion euros (2.37 billion pounds).

RWE said at its annual general meeting that its domestic and international renewable activities will take off, while in Britain it has completed its exit from fossil fuels and was changing to biomass from coal in the Netherlands.

Chief Executive Rolf Martin Schmitz said in his speech: "We are leaving fossil fuels behind in a consistent and responsible fashion. We have a clear focus on renewable energies."

He said the company was performing robustly in the coronavirus pandemic and maintained a target for earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation of 2.7 to 3.0 billion euros in 2020.

RWE has set aside 5 billion euros to invest in expanding renewable energy up to 2022.

RWE aims to be carbon-neutral by 2040, expanding wind and solar by 4 gigawatts (GW) to reach 13 GW 2022.
