Uncontrollable wildfires in California. Devastating hurricanes in Puerto Rico, Florida, and Texas. Record high temperatures in the Middle East. It’s clear that we are facing a climate crisis.
It didn’t have to be this way. The fossil fuel industry — especially the largest oil corporations like ExxonMobil, Chevron, BP, and Shell — have understood the dangers of climate change for decades. But instead of sounding the alarm, these Big Polluters’ actions did not match the urgency of the crisis we now face.
In just a few weeks, four of the largest oil and gas corporations will hold their annual shareholders’ meetings. And we’ll use the moment to shine a light on their role in blocking solutions to the climate crisis. Join the growing movement and demand these Big Polluters stop interfering with climate policy.
In this make-or-break year for the planet, Big Polluters and their front groups are working tirelessly to weaken and delay climate policy that is needed to save the planet and millions of lives. That’s why our team is in Germany right now organizing to kick Big Polluters out of the UN climate talks.
But we know Big Polluters’ interference doesn’t stop when this meeting ends. That’s why we need to keep the pressure on, and we’ve got a big opportunity to escalate pressure on corporations like ExxonMobil, Shell, Chevron, and BP. While these Big Polluters spend gobs of money trying to convince the world they’re part of the solution, we’ll make sure the world knows they’re blocking progress to preserve their own profits.
From May 21-30, four of the Biggest Polluters on the planet will hold their annual shareholders’ meetings. Shareholders’ meetings are the most important day of the year for publicly traded corporations — all eyes of the media and investors are on the corporations and their top executives. With a growing spotlight on their practices, including from their own investors, it’s time we show ExxonMobil, Chevron, BP, and Shell that the world is watching and demanding action.
