Report - Phase-out 2020: Monitoring Europe’s fossil fuel subsidies

 

This new report, carried out by Climate Action Network (CAN) Europe, Overseas Development Institute (ODI) and Green Budget Germany (GBG) monitors the different types of subsidies spent by 11 European governments and the EU from 2014 to 2016 in oil, gas and coal projects in Europe.

This report aims to raise awareness among European, national decision-makers and the general audience about the huge amounts of subsidies still going to fossil fuel activities in Europe, despite the multiple pledges to comply with the Paris Agreement.
