Gas is responsible for sky-high energy bills across Europe. It also has detrimental impacts on the environment – including the release of vast amounts of carbon and methane emissions . We must urgently shift to clean, cheap, plentiful, and local energy sources.

But billions of euros are at risk of being diverted from wind, solar, and other green technologies to fossil fuels and nuclear energy, worsening the climate crisis, harming our environment, and risking increased energy bills. This is because the EU gave gas and nuclear power a ‘green’ label, despite the high emissions from fossil gas and the radioactive waste produced by nuclear power. 

But this is not over yet! ClientEarth, WWF, Transport & Environment (T&E), and BUND (Friends of the Earth Germany) are starting legal action to prevent fossil gas from featuring in the EU’s sustainable finance Taxonomy.
