To European governments, parliaments and EU institutions:
Conditions in the little-known Energy Charter Treaty give polluters the ability to sue entire countries if their actions interfere with their profits.
The fact that corporations have the power to get richer through stopping Europe's efforts to stop the climate crisis is absolutely terrible. And it needs to stop.
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!
Will you add your name to join our call?
This petition is run by a wide coalition of organisations including Climate Action Network (CAN) Europe, Corporate Europe Observatory, the Transnational Institute, Avaaz, Campact, WeMove and many others.
