You would be forgiven for believing that the corporate world has had a change of heart and is now sticking to a strictly climate-friendly diet. Embracing low-carbon natural gas, a global carbon price, ‘net-zero emissions by the end of the century’ or ‘climate-smart agriculture’ are top of the menu. But peel back the PR and you reveal a business-as-usual recipe guaranteed to cook the planet.
Un nouvel briefing en Francais et Anglais publié par CEO montre, comment 'Solutions 21' à Paris, - qui présente soit disant climat solutions - est, en effet rien que un moyen pour les multinationales de verdir leur image et acheter aces aux politiciens. S'adressant aux activistes les quatre pages donnent plus d'informations sur qu'est-ce que c'est le 'Solutions 21'.
A new briefing in French and English by CEO shows how Solutions COP21 in Paris, which is supposed to showcase climate solutions during COP21, is in fact just a corporate greenwashing vehicle that also enables big business to buy access to decision makers. Aimed at activists, the 4-page briefing is a what's what on (false) Solutions COP21.
