Call on your European Representatives and ask them to stop funding fossil fuels!
The European Parliament will be voting early December on a big pot of money (the CEF fund) that could either go to fossil energy OR clean energy and energy efficiency solutions.
Keep an eye out on Friends Of the Earth Europe who will be organising an online tool to put pressure on our representatives.
A second campaign which was launched last month was the campaign by Oil Change International to tell the EBRD to stop investing in gas. The EBRD is revising its energy sector strategy for the next five years, and the final draft is schedule to be released by the end of the year. Right now, the draft strategy locks in gas as a part of the bank’s energy plans for years to come. You can sign the petition here.
