The world’s premier publisher of climate research and its parent company refuse to stop supporting fossil fuel expansion.

Elsevier and RELX support fossil fuels through:
Publications that identify technologies, methods, and areas for new fossil fuel development.
Data services — developed from academic research papers — that help most major oil, gas, and coal companies find and develop new fossil fuel resources.
Exhibition services for fossil fuel industry companies operating in exploration and development.
Support for U.S. politicians who obstruct and deny the need for immediate climate action.

It’s time to #StopElsevier and turn the page on science in service of fossil fuel expansion!

“It’s hard to believe that a company that publishes research about the dangers of the climate and ecological crises is the very same company that actively works with oil and gas companies to extract more fossil fuels, which drags us towards disaster

James Dyke, University of Exeter

The Guardian, 24 Feb 2022

By engaging in such activities while making vocal pledges to climate-friendly compacts like the UN Race to Zero program and the UN Global Compact, it’s clear that Elsevier is engaged in greenwashing.

Elsevier, The Lancet’s  publisher, continues to subsidise climate pollution through analytic tools and new journals supporting coal, oil, and gas exploration and extraction—an ongoing partnership that is morally and materially insupportable.
