No fossil fuels in the next EU budget!
The EU Toxic Funding Awards are here to show you what politicians are doing with your taxes. Are they still helping the fossil fuel industry to wreck the climate? Or are they investing in clean renewables and energy efficiency to build a safer fossil free society for us all?
According to the European Commission, the next EU budget will be a budget for the future that delivers on issues that matter for Europeans. But wait, shouldn’t that mean a budget that finances the solutions, not the causes of climate change? Yet current legislative proposals would permit and even encourage funding for fossil fuels, in particular gas, over most of the next decade.
It’s time to have your say! We have shortlisted four of the worst examples of toxic funding that are proposed to be part of the next EU budget. Cast your vote for the worst and show EU leaders you want an end to toxic funding and a fossil free EU budget!
