How corporations rule: vale

Friends of the Earth International, January 2011: The Brazilian company Vale is the world’s second largest metals and mining company and one of the largest producers of raw materials globally. Keen to protect its extractive and energy interests, Vale has used its proximity to the Brazilian government (which owns part of the company) to push for industry-driven measures through the UN’s climate negotiations, urging greater financial incentives and less stringent regulations for carbon offsetting.

como as corporações governam: vale

Amigos da Terra Internacional, Janeiro 2012: A empresa brasileira Vale é a segunda maior em metais e mineração e uma das maiores produtoras de matéria bruta no globo1. A empresa está se expandindo rapidamente2, inclusive na África, onde possui grande interesse em carvão mineral – um dos recursos energéticos mais intensos em carbono. Com o intuito de proteger seus interesses extrativistas e de energia, a Vale tem utilizado sua proximidade com o governo brasileiro (que detém parte da empresa) para pressionar, através das negociações climáticas da ONU, medidas dirigidas às indústrias – instigando maiores incentivos financeiros e medidas reguladoras mais brandas para compensações de emissões.

how corporations rule: ieta lobby group ignores carbon market flaws

Friends of the Earth International, December 2011: The International Emissions Trading Association (IETA) calls itself the “leading voice of the global business community on emissions trading” and represents a range of energy-intensive industries, from Shell to Rio Tinto. It plays an active lobbying role at UN climate talks, pushing for the expansion of carbon trading and to weaken standards under the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM), currently the main international offset mechanism.

how corporations rule: sasol and south africa's climate policy

Friends of the Earth International, December 2011: The corporate and elite capture of decision-making at the national level is a key factor underpinning governments’ failure to deliver economic transformation at the scale and speed needed to prevent the Earth’s climate from deteriorating further and avoiding even more dangerous climate tipping points. With this series of case studies, Friends of the Earth International aims to help open a window into the complex and largely hidden world of corporate pressure exerted over national and international climate and environmental policy.

How corporations rule: introduction

Friends of the Earth International, December 2011: With the launch of a series of briefings, Friends of the Earth International is aiming to help shed light on what we consider to be the central issue underlying a lack of governmental accountability toward ordinary citizens on environmental and sustainability issues.
