Duke Energy refuses to disclose cap-and-trade lobby spend

Shareholders have failed to force Duke Energy to detail its lobbying spend in support of the US Government’s carbon cap-and-trade plan.

US electricity and gas provider Duke Energy was called to account for its support of carbon cap-and-trade at its annual shareholders meeting yesterday. The National Center for Public Policy Research tabled a motion on behalf of an individual shareholder, requesting that Duke publish a report on the use of company resources to advance the case for cap-and-trade. The motion was not passed by a majority of shareholders; exact figures will be published along with the minutes of the meeting.
