REUTERS/Benoit TessierAirbus (AIR.PA) and Air France-KLM (AIRF.PA) have urged policymakers to use EU-backed green stimulus funds to support aircraft sales, according to documents released on Thursday by InfluenceMap, an investor-led climate lobbying watchdog.
"Support could take the form of a 'green stimulus' subsidy scheme," according to an Air France-KLM "key messages" digest dated March 26.
Another BNP-led demand for climate lobbying disclosures by Delta Air Lines (DAL.N) has been endorsed by influential proxy advisers ISS and Glass Lewis ahead of next Thursday's shareholder meeting.
"The idea that we have 'actively lobbied' against EU climate policies to reach these targets is false," A4E said.
