Sign the petition to your U.N. representatives: protect climate policy from big polluters

You wouldn’t let the fox guard the henhouse, so why would you allow big polluters and those representing their interests to participate in creating climate change policy? This is the question that many government delegates are asking as we prepare for the U.N. climate talks.

Climate change-related events are already devastating communities, and the very future of our planet is on the line. Now is the time for strong action on climate. But the fossil fuel industry is doing everything it can to protect its profits, including making sure its interests are represented in the policymaking arena.

The good news is that just a few months ago, many government delegates raised the issue of conflicts of interest at the latest U.N. climate treaty meeting -- the first time this issue had ever been discussed in over 20 years of climate policy. Now we need to make sure that every government will stand with these leaders to address conflicts of interest in climate policy.

Call on your government to protect climate policy from big polluters and address conflicts of interest at the U.N.

To: Your government representatives to the U.N.

I stand with the governments calling for an end to big polluter conflicts of interest at the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). In order for the UNFCCC to create strong climate policy that protects people and the planet from climate catastrophe, we need to remove big polluters from the policymaking table.

I am calling on you to stand up to the fossil fuel industry and stand with the government leaders calling for a conflict of interest policy at the UNFCCC.
