(False) Solutions COP21 - a guide
'Solutions COP21' in Paris is a corporate greenwashing vehicle that enables big business to buy access to politicians.
(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”
“BE PART OF EXPOSING THE CORPORATE AGENDA BEHIND 'SOLUTIONS COP21'”
