New report published by CEO and TNI, a 32-page guide to the web of corporate lobbying and industry capture of COP19, the yearly UN climate negotiations, taking place in Warsaw, 11-22 November 2013. The guide exposes the eleven official corporate partners of the conference, takes a look at some of the other influential Polish lobbies, and examines an extensive list of the lobby groups attending the COP. It also covers the false solutions that are being offered up by these corporate lobbies, such as shale gas, carbon capture and storage (CCS) and carbon markets.
When the Dalligate scandal hit the headlines, it rocked the Commission but one year on, Barroso has done his best to brush it under the carpet, ignoring the huge loopholes in the lobbying transparency rules and the Code of Conduct for Commissioners which enabled the scandal to take hold in the first place.
