Corporate Accountability ... Stop Big Polluter's greenwashing at the NYC climate summit!

Burgess COMMENTARY

Peter Burgess
This is gross Taylor Billings, Corporate Accountability info@corporateaccountability.org via mail.salsalabs.net 8:11 PM (3 hours ago) to me Corporate Accountability Stop Big Polluter's greenwashing at the NYC climate summit! GIVE NOW Peter, Right now, I’m standing outside a hotel in New York City. Inside, oil and gas executives are trying to co-opt the agenda of a week of action around the climate crisis. I’m here with dozens of activists from Global Campaign to Demand Climate Justice, Friends of the Earth, SustainUS, and many more, to expose this event for what it really is: blatant and absurd greenwashing. This swanky event is being sponsored by the Oil and Gas Climate Initiative (OGCI), an initiative funded by the world’s largest oil and gas corporations, and is designed to greenwash their extractive and dangerous practices. I came to New York City for the U.N. climate action summit and a flurry of other climate-related actions, protests, and events. It’s exciting and it’s infuriating. Exciting because so many people are showing up, and demanding change. Infuriating because the very corporations that fueled and profited off the climate crisis still have entirely too much of a say in how, or even if, we address the climate crisis. And the event I’m protesting is just one example. This kind of corporate interference is exactly why, over the past five years, Corporate Accountability has organized alongside our global allies and campaigned to kick Big Polluters out of the room where climate policy is being created. And Big Polluters are now digging in their heels and resorting to more blatant underhanded greenwashing schemes. But with you by our side, we can win, and ensure that we advance real solutions for climate justice. Will you donate to Corporate Accountability so that we have the resources we need to continue challenging the Big Polluters blocking real solutions to address the climate crisis? Thanks for all you do. Onward, Taylor Billings Press Secretary Corporate Accountability Corporate Accountability stops transnational corporations from devastating democracy, trampling human rights, and destroying our planet. We are building a world rooted in justice where corporations answer to people, not the other way around -- a world where every person has access to clean water, healthy food, a safe place to live, and the opportunity to reach their full human potential.
