Highlight
the corporations lobbying to undermine effective action to tackle
climate change at the UN Climate Talks in Copenhagen this year.
Corporate
Europe Observatory, Focus on the Global South, Friends of the Earth
Europe and Spinwatch are organising a high profile awards poll to
highlight the corporate climate lobbyists who have done the most
damage to the climate process.
Nominees
could be a major polluter that has lobbied at the national, regional
or international level to avoid taking action, or an opportunist
corporation which is lobbying to promote false solutions such as
carbon trading or agrofuels, 'solutions' that will in fact aggravate
the problem - but which represent a business opportunity for that
company. 

Or
nominees
could come be for an industry coalition, a lobby consultancy firm or
other lobby players pushing an irresponsible corporate agenda at the
expense of climate stability and justice. 

Cases
must be well-documented and recent (ie with lobbying activity in the
last 12 months).  
To
make a nomination, please send details of the company/coalition, as
much information as you know about their lobbying activities (with
sources where possible) and a brief summary (max 100 words)
explaining why they deserve to be nominated for the award. 

All
nominations must be submitted by Friday
11th
September 2009. The
best nominations for an award will then be put forward for a public
vote.
The
winner of the Worst Climate Lobby Awards will be announced during the
UN climate negotiations in Copenhagen in December this year to
highlight how corporate lobbying is undermining this process and
delaying effective action to tackle climate change. 

Please
send your nominees to ceo at corporateeurope.org
by Friday 11th
September
Get
involved and help expose the corporate lobbying which is undermining
effective action to tackle climate change!
