Rugby World Cup ‘greenwashing’ row erupts – BBC News

Fuel companies are using sport to “greenwash their image” and should not be allowed to sponsor World Cups, says former Australia captain David Pocock.

French oil company TotalEnergies is one of the main sponsors of the 2023 Rugby World Cup, which begins on Friday in Paris.

Pocock told the BBC he believed the message should be “you can’t sponsor us unless you have a legitimate decarbonisation plan, and you are transitioning your business”.

In response, a statement from TotalEnergies said it was “wrong” to claim its sponsorship was “greenwashing”.
