EU Money for CCS Lobby in Copenhagen

The Zero Emissions Platform (ZEP) – an EU-based fossil fuel industry group funded, in part, by the European tax payer – is in  Copenhagen to promote the role of Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) in an agreement on climate change. This article looks at how ZEP has used public money to lobby for subsidies in the EU - and how it is pushing for support on an international scale.

The Commission proposal for 'mandatory' transparency register is a disappointment. Its measures will do little to help journalists, civil society and citizens scrutinise the corporate lobbies trying to manipulate EU policies in their favour.
Corporate Europe Observatory is looking for an experienced, creative and dynamic outreach and mobilisation organiser to strengthen our visibility as well as public engagement with CEO's work in countries across Europe. The 13-month contract will run from 1 December 2016 to 31 December 2017.
CETA is a sweeping trade deal restricting public policy options in areas as diverse as intellectual property rights, government procurement, food safety, financial regulation, the temporary movement of workers, domestic regulation and public services, to name just a few of the topics explored in this analysis.
The International Civil Aviation Organization is expected to agree a new climate deal at its current assembly meeting. But its promise of “carbon neutral” flying through voluntary carbon offsetting is delusive, posing new threats to the environment and communities.
