  • EU funds need to catalyse the transition away from fossil fuels

  • Enerji̇ Şarti Anlaşmasi Üzeri̇ne Can Europe Poli̇ti̇ka Notu

    Enerji Şartı Anlaşması enerji sektöründe faaliyet gösteren yabancı yatırımcıları koruyan ve yatırımcıların devlet önlemlerini Yatırımcı-Devlet Uyuşmazlık Çözümü mekanizmasına (YDUÇ) götürmelerine olanak veren uluslararası bir anlaşmadır. Bu anlaşma, Avrupa Birliği’nin (AB) iklim taahhütleri ile uyumsuzdur ve gerekli reformlar tartışılmadığı ya da diğer imzacılar tarafından reformlara itiraz edildiği için halihazırdaki modernleşme süreci de bunu düzeltmeyecektir. Bizler bu nedenle AB’yi ve üye devletlerini bu anlaşmadan çekilmeye ve ayrılan taraflar arasında YDUÇ vakaları oluşması olasılığını devre dışı bırakan bir ek anlaşmayı yürürlüğe almaya davet ediyoruz. AB ve üye devletler ayrıca bu anlaşmaya başka ülkelerin katılmasını da önlemelidirler. Enerji Şartı Anlaşması CAN Europe PB
  • CAN Europe feedback to the Commission’s call for contributions: Competition Policy supporting the Green Deal

    To ensure the Competition Policy’s alignment with the European Green Deal, the state aid regime must be revised, taking the Union’s 2050 climate neutrality and new 2030 GreenHouse Gas (GHG) emission reduction targets, as well as zero pollution and circular economy strategies into account. The Green Deal alignment should be reflected on all state aid regulations and not only on those for environmental protection and energy.
