COP26: The largest delegation is that of the fossil

A few days ago we wrote about how Unilever, in third place as one of the most polluting companies with plastic, was one of the main sponsors of COP26 in Glasgow. Now, the Ong Global Witness took over that more than 500 people from the global oil and gas industry are present at the climate summit.

Global Witness checked the participant lists and identified as many as 503 accredited individuals with ties to the industry, which has long been accused of global warming.

The number of Brazil exceeds that of the indigenous community. That is, there are more representatives of the fossil than of the “keepers of our land”.

“The fossil fuel industry has spent decades denying and delaying real action on the climate crisis, which is why this is such a huge problem,” said Murray Worthy of Global Witness. “Their influence is one of the main reasons why 25 years of UN climate talks have not led to real cuts in global emissions.”

It also emerged that more than 100 companies operating in the fossil fuel sector are represented at COP26 and that many delegates would actively lobby to defend the interests of this industry. One of the largest groups is the International Emissions Trading Association (Ieta) with 103 delegates, including three representatives of the British oil giant BP.
