Withdraw from the Energy Charter Treaty by COP26!

Withdraw from the Energy Charter Treaty by COP26!

Together with over 400 organisations, Emmaus International is calling on political leaders from all the European countries to pull out of the Energy Charter Treaty by COP26, which will take place in November in Glasgow, and to respect their climate commitments.

While claiming to be at the forefront of the fight against climate change, these countries are signatories to a treaty that protects the fossil fuel giants. This agreement allows companies from this sector to sue states before corporate courts for taking necessary climate action if these go against their interests.

In view of the pressing environmental and social challenges ahead, governments must be free to adopt measures to rapidly transform our economy, to make it work for the environment and people, and to meet the ambitions of the Paris Agreement. This treaty is simply incompatible with these goals!
