“While this new commitment is an important step forward, it’s not enough. Millions of people are currently being left behind when it comes to accessing clean, affordable energy. The World Bank must commit to significantly scaling up its finance to support energy access for those without it, particularly for distributed renewable energy solutions.”
“G7 countries must turn words into action and develop a detailed roadmap for phasing out fossil fuel subsidies by 2025. For Canada, this responsibility ultimately lies with Environment and Clean Growth Minister Catherine McKenna and Finance Minister Bill Morneau,” said experts from the #StopFundingFossils coalition.

Analysis of the data shows that public finance for energy in Africa focuses on fossil fuels, as key energy access solutions are left behind.
A new study by Oil Change International has found that drilling for more new gas in Irish waters is not compatible with achieving the Paris Agreement to limit climate change. The report assesses the role of fossil gas in the energy system against the background of Ireland’s own decarbonization targets, and our obligations under the Paris Agreement.
“This decision represents a complete failure by the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission to hear the concerns of Indigenous communities and other Minnesotans demanding its rejection.”
