Climate Summit Inc
The Group - which includes big polluters like Shell and Cemex - has launched its own, surprisingly tough call for a Copenhagen deal (the Copenhagen Communique) - which is supported by some 900 companies from around the world.
They are a tiny minority, a network of just a few dozen individuals around the world. Their numbers contrast starkly with the overwhelming majority of scientists who agree on the reality of man-made climate change, and on the urgent need for action. But the voices of climate deniers, are amplified in Europe by a handful of extremist free marketeers and right-wing think tanks, which try to block action to tackle climate change.
Members of the public are invited to vote for the company making the most outrageous claims to be green when nominations for the Climate Greenwash Awards are revealed on Monday 11 May. The winner will be announced at a special ceremony in Copenhagen on Saturday 23 May - on the eve of the World Business Summit on Climate Change.
