In only her second week in office, new European Commission President von der Leyen has today set out a major environmental package to set the EU on a new environmental and climate path.

System change: Europe’s environmental and climate warning signals are flashing red according to a comprehensive ‘State of the Environment’ survey published by the European Environment Agency (EEA).

Friends of the Earth Europe works to prevent the extractive industries from destroying people's lives, the environment and the climate. We believe that resources should be utilised fairly and sustainably. Enforceable rules and practices are required to ensure that natural resources are a blessing, not a curse.

 

We are working to create the much-needed, fair and urgent transition to a fossil fuel free Europe by 2030 - dismantling the fossil fuel system and creating the just, clean energy future that people want and need.
