Attachment A

Resolution 1 - Special resolution to amend our company’s constitution

To insert into our company’s constitution the following new clause 7.6 (l):

        Member resolutions at general meeting

        The Members in general meeting may by ordinary resolution express an opinion or request information about the
        way in which a power of the company partially or exclusively vested in the directors has been or should be exercised.
        However, such a resolution must relate to an issue of material relevance to the company or the company’s business
        and cannot either advocate action which would violate any law or relate to any personal claim or grievance. Such a
        resolution is advisory only and does not bind the directors or the company.

Resolution 2 - Ordinary resolution on climate-related lobbying

Shareholders request that our company strengthen its review of industry associations to ensure that it identifies areas of
inconsistency with the Paris Agreement.

Where an industry association’s record of advocacy is, on balance, inconsistent with the Paris Agreement’s goals, shareholders
recommend that our company suspend membership, for a period deemed suitable by the Board.

Nothing in this resolution should be read as limiting the Board’s discretion to take decisions in the best interests of our company.
