Meet the Energy Charter Treaty – the fossil fuel industry’s secret weapon to attack climate action
During this 1-hour online crash course on the Energy Charter Treaty (ECT), the fossil fuel industry’s secret weapon to challenge climate action will be unveiled.
A large number of civil society groups from all over Europe has just launched a petition to end the climate-killing agreement. To allow many different people to participate, the same course will be offered at different times on the same day (4 March 2021, 1-2 pm and 7-8pm CET).

The crash course will zoom in on the arcane ECT and address questions like:
- what is the ECT and where does it come from?
- how can polluters use it to undermine climate action?
- who benefits?
- how can we get out?
After 30 minutes of introductory videos and presentations, there will be plenty of time for your questions – and for sharing our action plan to bring down the ECT.
The crash-courses are organised by: ClientEarth, Climate Action Network (CAN) Europe, Corporate Europe Observatory, Friends of the Earth Europe, Hiilivapaa Suomi, PowerShift, Transnational Institute, Umanotera, and Urgewald.
