Moving Beyond Fossil Fuels
As fossil fuel companies continue to operate out of a colonizing worldview that leads them to drill, dig, and frack for oil, gas, and coal, they devastate ecosystems, poison waters and people, subject frontline communities to violence, and speed up climate change. Now is the time to end the production of new fossil fuels, enact clear transition plans, and accelerate the shift to clean energy. But in the coming years, governments plan to produce more than double the amount of fossil fuels that would keep global warming below 1.5°C – a tipping point for further climate catastrophe.
We cannot be content with this sluggish rate of change. To guarantee a healthier, brighter future for the whole planet, we must make a full, rapid transition to renewable energy. We are pushing that transition forward through our Climate Finance, Ending New Fossil Fuel Production, and Advancing Energy Solutions programs.
Advancing Energy Solutions
Our campaigns are moving major brands and national governments to visibly scale up investments in clean energy technologies while rapidly phasing out coal-fired power plants.
Ending New Fossil Fuel Production
Our campaigns are reducing the consumption of fossil fuels and limiting the production of new oil, gas, and coal to accelerate the shift towards renewable energy.
Our campaigns are pushing North American pension funds and big banks to divest from fossil fuel projects and reinvest capital in climate solutions, such as renewable energy infrastructure.
