Annual General Meeting 2020

Annual General Meeting

The Annual General Meeting (AGM) was held at Inveralmond House, 200 Dunkeld Road, Perth PH1 3AQ on Wednesday 12 August 2020 at 11.00am.

Ensuring shareholder safety

In light of the outbreak of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and associated social distancing measures, the 2020 AGM was held with only the minimum number of shareholders present as required to form a quorum under the Company’s Articles of Association, who were officers or employees of the Company. The safety of shareholders, employees and the public is SSE’s number one priority; for that reason, other shareholders were not invited to the AGM on the day.

Shareholder engagement

You can view our presentation to shareholders from the Chair of the SSE plc Board, Richard Gillingwater CBE, below. He reflects on SSE’s operational delivery in a financial year which ended in unprecedented circumstances due to coronavirus

Shareholders were given the opportunity to submit questions in advance via email and we engaged directly with a number of institutional shareholder bodies. We have drawn questions into themes and pre-recorded video responses from members of the Board. All questions from institutional investors, and a sample of those from retail investors, have been addressed in a video that can be viewed via the link below. All retail investors have been responded to either through the video or directly where more detailed responses to questions were required. The full written questions from and responses to institutional investor groups are also available in the separate link below.
