    Greenwashing Around The World

    Greenwashing in a time of global warming

    Zeina Moneer, December 13, 2022 (Middle East Institute)

    “…Big polluters are making net-zero promises and falsely presenting themselves as embracing “sustainable” solutions to gloss over their decades of environmental pollution and destruction…[T]he 20 largest oil companies are planning to spend $1.5 trillion developing fossil fuel sources by 2041…The fossil fuel multinationals have [also] been relying on public relations and advertising campaigns to promote the claim that climate change is about individuals’ lifestyle decisions and not the fault of the oil giants…

    …[And while industry and governments have introduced “green” hydrogen made from renewables and water] to help decarbonization efforts and accelerate the green transition…the oil-producing states of Egypt and Algeria are manufacturing hydrogen from fossil fuel, using controversial CCS — which has received millions in subsidies — to trap emissions, known as “blue” hydrogen. Blue hydrogen results in a huge carbon footprint and risks undermining the benefits of using hydrogen in the first place…Big polluters are now relying on a new tactic called “woke-washing” to gain legitimacy and social acceptance while maintaining their business models…

    …[Woke-washing starts with a] warning that advancing low-carbon pledges would be socially and economically unjustifiable…[and follows with big polluters] presenting their activities and businesses as integral and beneficial to society by relying on social movements’ values to justify their actions…” click here for more
