climate justice and energy
Friends of the Earth US and other groups, January 2003: Do you know under what conditions the clothes you wear were manufactured, the gas you burn in your car was extracted, the gold in the jewelry you own was mined, or the television set you watch was assembled? As a consumer of these and other products, don’t you have a right to know? American consumers who buy products from overseas too often become unwitting accomplices in destructive activities. The right-to-know loophole makes it all but impossible for U.S. consumers to know how products were manufactured abroad.
Friends of the Earth England Wales and Northern Ireland, 2002: This report is a testament to the people around the world who have suffered and continue to suffer from Shell’s operations. If Shell is serious about its aims to be an environmentally and socially responsible multinational it has nothing to fear from engaging with local communities. And it should have nothing to fear from our proposed changes to UK company law, that would allow communities to hold corporations to account for their impacts on people and the environment.
Friends of the Earth International, June 2005: This Report tracks the flaring back to the closing days of colonial history; sketches the scale of the activity in what has become one of the world’s biggest oil and gas producing countries; explains some of its implications for climate change and communities; shows how the practice constitutes a violation of human rights and is generally prohibited under the regulations, and; concludes with recommendations for its elimination, and transparency.
Friends of the Earth International, December 2008: Non-profits around the world illustrate why the World Bank should not have any role in an international climate change convention regime in this report.
Friends of the Earth International, July 2008: Only a radical change based on climate justice will be able to prevent the worst consequences of climate change. Friends of the Earth describes its positions ahead of the United Nations Climate Change conference in Poznan, Poland in December 2008.
