DGB Group concludes AGM with approval on all resolutions

DGB Group N.V. (“DGB”, “the Group”, or “the Company”) (Euronext: DGB: NL000916951), a leading carbon project developer and ecosystem restoration company, informs its stakeholders of the successful conclusion of its Annual General Meeting (“AGM”) held on 16 May 2024 at 14:00 CET.

Key highlights

The AGM saw the approval of all agenda items proposed for voting, underscoring a clear consensus among shareholders on the strategic direction and governance of the Company.

The resolutions adopted include the: 1) Approval of the minutes from the Annual General Meeting of Shareholders held on 6 July 2023; 2) Adoption of the Annual Accounts for the fiscal year 2023 as prepared by the Executive Board, despite the absence of an auditor’s report; 3) Discharge of the members of the Executive Board for their responsibilities in the 2023 financial year; 4) Authorisation for the Board of Directors to repurchase shares within the share capital of the Company for a period of 18 months, up to a maximum of 50% of the issued capital; and 5) Approval of the delegation to the Board of Directors of the power to issue shares and to restrict or exclude the pre-emptive rights associated with such issuances.

Additionally, a presentation on the outlook of the carbon credit market and DGB's strategic positioning was delivered during the meeting. The presentation highlighted the substantial growth potential of the voluntary (verified) carbon market, driven by increasing global commitments to net-zero targets and a robust demand for high-quality carbon credits. 

Projections suggest the market could expand to between $10 billion and $100 billion by 2030. DGB is strategically positioned to capitalise on this trend, anticipating a significant increase in demand for high-quality carbon credits from afforestation/reforestation projects. This strategy aligns with DGB's commitment to sustainability and biodiversity conservation, aiming to offer attractive returns for investors while making a positive environmental impact. The presentation was well received by shareholders, affirming strong support for DGB's strategic direction in leveraging the dynamics of the carbon credit market to foster sustainable growth.

DGB is committed to maintaining transparency and upholding the highest standards of corporate governance as it continues to pursue its strategic objectives. The Company extends its gratitude to all participants for their invaluable contributions and continued support.
