Mike Cannon-Brookes, via his private investment arm Grok Ventures, is urging AGL to speed up the shutdown of its coal-fired plants and focus on decarbonization and renewable energy.
Thursday, AGL will announce its new strategy.
Grok Ventures said the current five-member board needs additional members with various talents to revamp AGL.
AGL didn’t immediately comment to Reuters.
Last week, Cannon-Brookes questioned AGL board member Patricia McKenzie’s promotion to chair. He had previously vetoed AGL’s intention to divide its coal-fired generation unit from the energy retail business.
AGL’s annual general meeting is Nov. 15. Shareholders will vote on board nominations.
