Fossil Free Europe Delivering a just transition to a 100% renewable, no nuclear, super energy-efficient, zero-fossil-fuel Europe by 2030

13 December 2019

Prospects for vulnerable communities in the global South look dire, as wealthy countries refuse to pay up for the climate damage they have caused and Northern governments and corporations push forward carbon trading, says Friends of the Earth International as another round of deeply disappointing world climate talks draw to a close.

In only her second week in office, new European Commission President von der Leyen has today set out a major environmental package to set the EU on a new environmental and climate path.

The world is on track to global warming in excess of 3˚C, yet the commitments made by political leaders fall far short of what is needed to protect vulnerable and poor people across the world. But it doesn't have to be this way.

 

Friends of the Earth Europe is working to create the much-needed, fair and urgent transition to a fossil fuel free Europe by 2030. This means dismantling the fossil fuel system and creating the just, clean energy future that people want and need.
