Report alleges European gas industry lobby promotes gas as part of solution to climate emergency; incl. responses

The report "Who owns all the pipelines?" published by the European Network of Corporate Observatories (ENCO) looks at Europe's four biggest gas transport companies - Fluxys (Belgium), Enagás (Spain), GRTgaz (France), Snam (Italy) - and the pipeline and other gas infrastructure projects they are involved in despite climate science and local opposition to these. In addition, the report raises concerns regarding the EU lobbying activities of the four companies. Specifically, it alleges the companies continue to promote gas as part of the solution to the climate emergency.

Business & Human Rights Resource Centre invited the four companies named in the report to respond. Enagás responded, their full response is available below alongside the report. Fluxys, GRTgaz and Snam did not respond.
