InfluenceMap report alleges misleading climate-related branding & lobbying by major oil & gas companies; BP, Chevron, ExxonMobil, Shell & Total responded

In March 2019, InfluenceMap published research finding that the five largest publicly-traded oil and gas majors (ExxonMobil, Shell, Chevron, BP and Total) have invested over $1Bn of shareholder funds in the three years following the Paris Agreement on misleading climate-related branding and lobbying. These efforts are overwhelmingly in conflict with the goals of this landmark global climate accord and designed to maintain the social and legal license to operate and expand fossil fuel operations. Business & Human Rights Resource Centre reached out to all five companies for a public response; BP, Chevron, ExxonMobil, Shell, & Total responded.
