Walk The Talk: Time for the G7 to make the COP28 Fossil Fuel Pledge a Reality

June 4, 2024By nicoleBriefings, Global Policy, Resources, Stop Funding Fossils 1 Comment

This new briefing from Oil Change International shows that G7 countries, which have both the capacity and the responsibility to be leaders in phasing out fossil fuels, are not walking the walk – at home or abroad: some G7 countries are massively expanding fossil fuel production at home, while others are investing in more fossil fuel infrastructure abroad. Both are catastrophic failures of leadership, which the G7 has a responsibility to correct.

“Since COP28 in Dubai, both producers and importers of fossil fuels have a responsibility to accelerate the transition away from them.  While COP28 President Al Jaber is right to point out that fossil fuel demand needs to decline rapidly, this cannot be an excuse for the massive expansion of fossil fuels planned by his own company, ADNOC, and the five rich global north countries responsible for the majority of planned oil and gas expansion to 2050, led by the United States.”

“Global leaders have to deliver a full package. We will not accept weak outcomes only on coal or renewables, and without addressing the primary driver of the climate crisis, fossil fuels. We need countries to reach an agreement that includes a just and equitable phase out of all fossil fuels, with rich countries agreeing to phase out fastest, as well as a rapid phase in of renewables, a doubling of energy efficiency, and rich countries agreeing to redirect trillions in finance from fossil fuel industry handouts  to support the transition in the form of grants, not loans.”
