The European Investment Bank (EIB) voted today to hand out one of Europe’s largest ever loans to one of the EU’s largest fossil fuel projects, the contentious Trans Adriatic Pipeline (TAP).

The European Commission today announced new subsidies for fossil fuels, with nearly €200 million for gas projects, as part of a larger package of energy investments for 2018.

Our world is already experiencing man-made climate change, including here in Europe. The overconsumption of resources is contributing to the climate crisis and increasing social inequality within and between countries.

 

Friends of the Earth Europe believes the rich industrialised countries most responsible for the climate crisis, including Europe, must act first and fastest to combat it in ways that do not deepen social injustice.

 

Real solutions to climate change are available. We are working to build and strengthen a movement for climate justice and to promote genuine solutions to the climate crisis.
