With less than two months left until the Earth Summit, Friends of the Earth (FOE) warned that European Union Environment Ministers must take urgent action if the meeting is not to be seen as a backward step for the environment. FOE has made an international convention to stop multinational companies from causing environmental and social damage one of their chief international campaigning priorities. The Earth Summit, otherwise known as the World Summit on Sustainable Development, will take place on Johannesburg, South Africa, at the end of August 2002.
