The Big Con Report

The Corporate Accountability and Public Participation Africa (CAPPA) joins climate justice activists across the world to launch “The Big Con: How Big Polluters are advancing a “net zero” climate agenda to delay, deceive, and deny.” The report was written by Corporate Accountability, The Global Forest Coalition and Friends of the Earth International and was endorsed by over sixty environmental organizations including Health of Mother Earth Foundation, EarthLife Africa, GenderCC- Women For Climate Justice, Vision for Alternative Development (VALD) Ghana, Africa Center for Advocacy, and the Institute for Policy Studies, among others.

“The Big Con” joins a series of recent reports in uncovering the dubious arithmetic, vague targets, and often unachievable technological aspirations of these “net zero” plans, analyzing plans from a number of key polluting industries including the fossil fuel and energy, aviation, technology, retail, finance, and agriculture industries. It also includes an in-depth look at some of the strategies these industries have deployed to ensure their “net zero” agenda becomes the primary dogma of the global response to the climate crisis.
