Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt – Commenting on the latest draft cover from the COP27 Presidency, Yeb Saño, Executive Director, Greenpeace Southeast Asia and Head of the Greenpeace delegation attending the COP said:

“Once more we call on the Egyptian Presidency to reject the influence of the petro states and fossil fuel lobbyists.” 

“India clearly put all fossil fuels on the phase down negotiating table. The EU could not have been simpler in calling for a phase out. And, Tuvalu powerfully connected transitioning away from fossil fuels with staying below 1.5C as a human right.“

“For this COP to succeed it must include a phase out of all fossil fuels – coal, oil and gas.”
