Corporate COP21 Special: a tour of Paris's lobbying hotspots

Join AITEC, ATTAC France, Corporate Europe Observatory, l'Observatoire des Multinationales and the Transnational Institute for a guided 'lobby tour' of Paris's climate criminals, with a special focus on the ongoing UN climate talks in the French capital, COP21.

With information from the new Paris Lobby Planet (Corporate COP21 Special), hear how the dirtiest corporations are lobbying to stop climate action and greenwashing to present fossil fuels or industrial agriculture as solutions to climate change. Also expect to visit other climate criminals, such as international institutions and world governments, all hard at work to maintain business as usual.

Stop ISDS campaign 2019

Coal garnered much media attention, thanks to the Polish Government and US President Trump’s support. But it was the gas industry that really stunk up the conference, its influence seeping into all corners of the negotiating halls. Luckily activists and communities were present to call industry out and demand real solutions.

The slogan of this year's climate talks is “black to green” -  appropriate, given the dirty energy companies that are bankrolling the conference. While the sponsors hide behind green branding, their core business models depend on coal, oil and gas, and are therefore absolutely incompatible with the Paris Agreement, let alone a planet still habitable in the future.

Concerns about corporate co-option at the upcoming climate meeting COP24 in Poland are growing as the sponsors are revealed. Many are dirty energy companies, among them several from Poland's state-owned coal industry. A repeat of the 2013 COP at which the Polish presidency allowed coal and gas privileged access to the meeting? It looks likely.

Part 1 dissects some of the key myths about renewable gas being promoted by industry and shows why they shouldn’t be believed.
