Fossil fuel companies have sent 500 lobbyists to the COP 26, more than any single country at the summit, according to the environmental campaign group Global Witness.

The group found at least 503 people linked with coal, oil and gas companies attending  the conference. Over 100 fossil fuel companies are represented at COP with 30 trade associations and membership organizations also present. 27 official country delegations registered fossil fuel lobbyists including Canada, Russia and Brazil as well as fuel companies including Shell, Gazprom and BP

The analysis found that the fossil fuel lobby at COP 26 is larger than the combined total of the eight delegations from the countries worst affected by climate change in the last two decades - Puerto Rico, Myanmar, Haiti, Philippines, Mozambique, Bahamas, Bangladesh, Pakistan.
