Lobby planet Paris - a guide to corporate COP21

Closed to citizens, open to lobbyists : 'Lobby Planet Paris' guide exposes "Corporate COP21"

 

A new guide to lobbying and greenwashing around the UN climate talks is released today. 'Lobby Planet Paris – a guide to corporate COP21' highlights the corporate influence over the UN talks just before they begin.

In the aftermath of the Paris attacks, many civil society events and demonstrations that had been planned for the UN Climate Conference have been cancelled or reduced in scale, making it even harder than before for citizens and social movements to make themselves heard. At the same time, the lobbying and greenwashing of climate criminals and corporate profiteers continues unaffected, and is stronger than ever.

From fossil fuels to finance or industrial agriculture, 'Lobby Planet Paris'' maps the big corporations, lobby groups and trade associations that are trying hard to capture the climate talks and maintain business as usual, with the help of many governments and international institutions.

Exposing the lobbying of big business costs money. Would you consider a donation to help us continue? We refuse funding from the EU, governments, political parties and corporations to be as independent as possible, so every single donation really helps. Thanks!

A seemingly innocent concept, the “innovation priniciple” has been invented by some of the dirtiest industries in Europe. They have carefully and strategically inserted it into the EU system, where it could have a significant impact on the shaping of new EU legislation or policies, and those under revision.

Climate change and biodiversity losses loom large on the list of global environmental concerns. Both UN processes for adressing these issues – the UNFCCC for climate change and the UN CBD for biodiversity – are closely followed by corporate lobbyists. Now the UN Biodiversity Convention finally features conflict of interest rules – a step still not matched by the UNFCCC.

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.
