Dear Sir John Soane's Museum,
I'm writing to you under the Freedom of Information Act (2000) to ask that you please disclose to me any and all funding your organisation has received from fossil fuel (oil, gas, coal) over the last 5 years, year on year. This could be funding for galleries, exhibitions, research funding, grants, or other such agreements. If this cannot be done within the cost limit I would the same for the last three years (2020, 2021, 2022)
The companies I would like you to focus on are: BP, Glencore, Petrofac, Shell (Royal Dutch Shell), Total, ExxonMobil, Schlumberger, Centrica, Equinor, BHP Group, Bantu, Eni, Chevron, Enbridge, ConocoPhilip, Chesapeake Energy, and Cluff Energy.
I shall be away from the Museum on Tuesday 29 November and will respond to
your message on Wednesday 30 November.
Dear Mr Colbert
Thank you for your enquiry under the Freedom of Information Act.
I can confirm that Sir John Soane's Museum has received no funding from fossil fuel interests over the last five years.
