Anti-Energy Charter Treaty
The Energy Charter Treaty (ECT) is a huge obstacle for the clean energy transition. To tackle the climate crisis we need to keep fossil fuels in the ground. But governments that phase out coal, end gas production, or stop oil pipelines can be sued by corporations in private courts and be held liable for billions in damages. The ECT makes it possible.
With this petition, we demand from European governments, parliaments and EU institutions:
Pull out of the Energy Charter Treaty and stop its expansion to other countries! The treaty allows coal, oil and gas corporations to obstruct the transition to a clean energy system. Disarm fossil fuel firms now, so they can no longer impede urgent climate action! Visit the campaign page.
Time to end the power of fossil fuel corporations to oppose the phase-out of coal, gas and oil! The Energy Charter Treaty must go! Please sign the petition and share widely!
