Why we need to mobilise for COP26

In an economy which puts corporate profit above the interests of ordinary people, just 100 giant global companies are responsible for 71% of all carbon emissions. Since 1965, a mere 20 fossil fuel corporations contribute more than 1/3 of global emissions. Not only have they failed to make the shift towards a zero carbon economy, they’ve spent a lot of time and money persuading governments not to legislate for this either. They are also preventing governments from implementing laws and policies that will protect the environment by suing them in corporate courts to protect their profits.

Governments themselves are also undermining action on climate change by negotiating free trade and investment deals that threaten environmental regulations and give fossil fuel companies more power than ever. Many are also given large amounts of public money to fossil fuel projects across the global south. It’s vital that we expose this, and demand a just approach to decarbonisation – at the COP and beyond.
