(soon available in FR)

'Solutions COP21' is a big corporate-sponsored expo coinciding with the Paris climate talks. A chance for big business to promote its pie-in-the-sky market-based techno-fixes to climate change. (False) Solutions COP21 is all about ensuring damaging business models can continue, keeping up corporate profits whilst wrecking the climate, local environments and communities' livelihoods.

The corporate partners of Solutions COP21 include big companies with dodgy records towards people and planet, such as GDF Suez (now Engie), Coca Cola, Renault-Nissan, Avril/Sofiproteol and Suez Environment.

With 50,000 expected visitors and 250 conferences, Solutions COP21's website tells us to

“BE PART OF THE GRAND PALAIS CLIMATE EXPERIENCE”

We say:

“BE PART OF EXPOSING THE CORPORATE AGENDA BEHIND 'SOLUTIONS COP21'”

 

Help!

New documents increase concerns over the controversial reform to the Services Notification Procedure (“Bolkestein Directive”), which could radically expand EU Commission powers over national and municipal services regulation: 55 files obtained via access to documents requests show the heavy influence of big business lobbies over the proposal.

Member states play a hugely important role in EU decision-making, but too often they act as middlemen for corporate interests. This new report combines case studies, original research, and analysis to illustrate the depth of the problem - and what you can do about it.
