Earlier this year the Transnational Institute released some of its findings about the state of corporate power, and its social and environmental costs.
Out of all the findings, that includes the analysis of who are the global 1%, what companies do they run and how they escape accountability, this presentation below is the most relevant to the Push Europe campaign’s new focus on the influence of big business on climate and environmental decisions.
Just to highlight: out of the 10 biggest companies in the world 8 are oil and gas companies. The biggest oil companies, BP and Shell, are based in Europe, together with other oil giants Total, ENI, and Statoil just to mention a few.
