14 Climate Change – South African Conferences 2009 Kübler-Ross Model – 5 stages of grief 1.Denial - "I feel fine."; "This can't be happening, not to me." 2.Anger- Why me? It's not fair!"; "How can this happen to me?"; "Who is to blame?" 3.Bargaining - “how can we sort this out?” – G20? G2?

15 Climate Change – South African Conferences 2009 Sorting it out – director/shareholder relationship Pre 2009 – companies not run for the benefit of shareholders run for benefit of directors Options…Exactly that…not a long-term commitment Borrowing to buy back shares.  Increased share price – make options more valuable  Increased gearing Excessive pay – Oligarchic. Justify paying in comparison to peers. Shareholders passive – stock going up so no concern.

16 Climate Change – South African Conferences 2009 Post Change of sentiment Companies will be run for the shareholders again (e.g. Japan) In some cases CEOs have to buy a number of shares determined in relation to their overall remuneration. Proposal for average wage to appear in report and accounts and the difference between the highest and lowest salaries and male and female wage differential. Shareholders becoming more activist Sorting it out – director/shareholder relationship
