Profit before planet

Friends of the Earth Campaign

"I want an environmental policy that supports the planet not profits"

Campaign Action Card reads....

"Dear David Cameron

I am extremely concerned to learn that corporate giants are spending millions funding business lobby groups that influence Government policies, sabotage international agreements such as Kyoto and Copenhagen and undermine credible scientific evidence on the impact of CO2 emissions.

I am therefore calling on you and your government to put the interests of people and our planet first- and not allow yourselves to be bullied by big business. I also urge you to take a leading role in galvanising leaders of developed countries to agree a binding commitment t cutting CO2 emissions by at least 40% without offsets."

Taken from 'PRofit before Planet: Who is making deals with your government" leaflet.
