Activists demand end of Shell, fossil fuel at shareholder meeting

Small in number but big in voice .... Around 20 activists picketed Royal Dutch Shell's AGM on Tuesday ... Calling for this year's gathering to be its last.

Environment action group Code Rood - Code Red - say Shell's business can't be reconciled with global warming.

The Anglo-Dutch company was praised in December when it set industry-leading targets to reduce greenhouse gas emissions .... But Code Red says it continues to put more than 95 per cent of its investments into oil and gas extraction.

It's not alone among oil majors to come under pressure.

Greenpeace activists blocked the entrance to BP headquarters in London on Monday - ahead of its AGM in Scotland on Tuesday.

BP has backed a resolution to be more transparent and link executive pay to reducing emissions from its own operations .... In order to link to goals set by the 2015 Paris climate deal.

But some investors and activists want it to go further - and to follow Shell in setting even tougher targets.
