Petition Ban fossil fuel sponsorship of all UK culture, media and sport
Companies are using the sponsorship of culture, media and sport to greenwash their reputations, buying the social licence they need to continue profiting from the destruction of the planet. This activity threatens our collective future and it needs to be banned.
To meet the Paris Agreement goals of keeping global temperature rises beneath 1.5 degrees, we need a rapid transition away from fossil fuels, based on far-reaching changes to every aspect of our lives. Companies that have a financial interest in slowing this process cannot be given a seat at the table. Petrochemical majors have stifled climate action for decades and they continue to do so today. Like tobacco companies, they must be prevented from laundering their reputations through sponsorship.
