The secret weapon of the fossil fuel industry: How a little known treaty threatens climate action in Europe

The secret weapon of the fossil fuel industry: How a little known treaty threatens climate action in Europe

14. October 2020, 7 pm - 8.30 pm (digital)

Can you imagine multinationals suing governments for taking climate action?

What is worse, can you imagine that three private lawyers decide if  governments have to pay millions in compensation to multinationals for protecting the climate?

Sadly, this is not science fiction, it is already happening. And it is made possible by the Energy Charter Treaty.

The Energy Charter Treaty (ECT) is a powerful weapon used by the fossil fuel industry to undermine climate action and the just transition. Phasing out coal, banning fracking, exiting nuclear energy, or raising environmental protection standards can all be attacked with the  ECT.

In this webinar, we want to explore what the Energy Charter Treaty is, how it’s threatening climate action and what we can do to stop it.
