Exposing the power of corporate lobbying in the EU

CEO's work exposes the corporate capture of EU and international climate policies. It shows how corporate lobbying has resulted in a combination of weak CO2 reduction measures, the dominance of carbon markets and other false solutions such as agrofuels, nuclear energy and carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology. Broad awareness and collective mobilisation and pressure to demand real change are needed to force the EU to abandon false solutions and adopt effective and just climate policies.
