  • More EU fossil fuel subsidies: Pro-gas MEPs pervert the spirit of the Just Transition Fund

    The Committee for regional development of the European Parliament has adopted its position on the Just Transition Fund. By allowing the fund to finance fossil gas, they set the Parliament up against the European Commission and the Council, while diverting away from earlier European Parliament's decisions to end fossil fuel subsidies.
  • ‘Unholy alliance’ of MEPs must not allow gas in Just Transition fund

    Media Advisory The European Parliament’s Committee on Regional Development (REGI) is voting on the EU Just Transition Fund - which aims to support EU regions in their transition to climate neutrality - on 6 July. They have the chance to follow the EU Council, which last week agreed to fully exclude fossil fuels from funding. The Parliament voted to exclude fossil fuels from EU regional funds in March 2019. Yet despite this, there is a potential unholy alliance between the ECR, EPP and Renew to push for a big loophole which would allow some gas power and infrastructure to get funding.
  • Council goes fossil fuel-free in Just Transition funding

    Yesterday the Council agreed to exclude all fossil fuel activities, including fossil gas, from the scope of the Just Transition Fund, a financial mechanism meant to support EU regions that currently rely the most on fossil fuels in their just transition towards climate neutrality.
