ExxonMobil faces a pivotal moment this week as shareholders have their say on what critics call an inadequate response to seismic shifts brought on by climate change. The chief executive of AstraZeneca, Pascal Soriot, insists that his company’s Covid-19 has a future, and for the first time, the European bloc is allowed to arm governments in conflict zones, with money from a new €5bn fund known as the European Peace Facility.
