Climate and energy

CEO's work exposes the corporate capture of EU and international climate policies. It shows how corporate lobbying has resulted in a combination of weak CO2 reduction measures, the dominance of carbon markets and other false solutions such as agrofuels, nuclear energy and carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology. Broad awareness and collective mobilisation and pressure to demand real change are needed to force the EU to abandon false solutions and adopt effective and just climate policies.

It's almost six months since EU Climate Commissioner Miguel Arias Cañete claimed to have negotiated an historic global deal to tackle climate change at COP21in Paris. The 3 May also marked a year and a half of Cañete being in the job. However, he and his his boss, Vice President of the Commission Maros Šefčovič, continue to give privileged access to fossil fuel players trashing the climate, who have enjoyed eight meetings to every one involving renewable energy or energy efficiency interests since the Paris deal was signed. Rather than a change of direction, it's business as usual for the European Commission following the Paris Agreement, which is great news for Big Energy but a disaster for those serious about tackling climate change.
