Joint Statement: People Over Polluters

Energy transition

On the 25th of October 2023, 100+ civil society, trade unions and anti-poverty groups signed on to the People Over Polluters declaration to kick polluters out of decision making and centre the voices of groups working for the public interest.

New Fossil Free Politics research shows oil companies actively lobbied and weakened social measures, including windfall taxes, at the national and EU levels that would have helped millions during the fossil fuel crisis. They also pushed for further fossil gas and oil lock-ins for decades to come.

We need real solutions, without vested interests, to be heard. It’s time to overhaul our political system to ensure our decision makers work for the public good, not private corporations. Join 100,000+ and sign the petition to make your voice heard by decision makers.
