The EU has decided to stay in the Energy Charter Treaty, with provisions to protect fossil investments for another decade AT LEAST. This is a crime and failure of epic proportions. The campaign now moves national. Each country can still #ExitECT. #NoECT
The EU committing to protecting fossil fuels for another decade, just weeks after the @IPCC_CH report made clear that emissions need to drop NOW for BOTH 1.5 and 2 degrees warming basically is a commitment to >2 degrees futures.
Every climate group, in every country that is an ECT member, must now focus on getting their country out individually. Anything less is an abject betrayal of the future. No climate action can happen within this treaty. Read more here ... #exitECT #StopISDS

Starkes Zeichen! Das Europaparlament hat heute die EU-Kommission und die EU-Mitgliedsstaaten aufgefordert, Investitionen in fossile Brennstoffe vom vertraglichen #Investitionsschutz auszuschließen. Auf diese klaren Worte müssen Taten folgen, sonst passiert das: Ein Thread 1/8
2/8 Heutzutage werden EU-Mitgliedsstaaten dank Investitionsabkommen oft wegen ihrer #Klimaschutzpolitik verklagt – und zwar nicht vor dem nationalen Justizsystem sondern vor privaten, geheimen Schiedsgerichten.
3/8 Ein krasses Beispiel: der Energiecharta-Vertrag wurde letztes Jahr von RWE genutzt, um die Niederlande wegen ihres Kohleausstiegs zu verklagen. Dass das überhaupt möglich ist, ist ein Skandal! Deswegen fordert das EU-Parlament einen koordinierten Ausstieg aus diesem Vertrag.

"Put it simple, this treaty is a major threat to the EU energy sovereignty, #GreenDeal, and #ClimateJustice goals. This timely comic is of high importance to ensure the French Presidency will end the participation of EU countries to this ecocide treaty.” @ysaheb #ExitECT #NoECT Image
"The Energy Charter Treaty is the arguably the largest and most arcane obstacle to climate action. This comic will help you figure out what is going on through thoroughly researched cases. Read, share and convince your politicians to stop the ECT!" @JKSteinberger #ExitECT Image

For the first time in history, the #IPCCReport has recognized the role of Free Trade Agreements and Bilateral Investment Treaties as mechanisms to delay government action for climate mitigation.

This is a huge milestone.🧵👇🏽
The IPCC WGIII report warns that international investment agreements have tended to protect investor rights when clashing with environmental policies.

This leads to “regulatory chill” that can delay government action, such as phasing out of fossil fuels.
In particular, the IPCC WGIII report explicitly acknowledges the role of the Energy Charter Treaty in hindering the energy transition.

It states that fossil-fuel companies could use investment protection to block national legislation that aims to phase out of fossil fuels.

Why does the state never win in claims under the #EnergyCharterTreaty and how is #Luxembourg 🇱🇺connected to some of these claims?
The example of Abengoa Spain can give an insight in these questions:
Spain is the most sued country under the Energy Charter Treaty: it accumulates 50 lawsuits and a claimed amount of more than 10 billion euros. The solution is very simple: to avoid this waste of public money, the exit from the Treaty must be initiated.
In a claim under the #EnergyCharterTreaty it can never be said that "the State has won": the defence costs alone amount to millions of euros. As in the case of Abengoa Spain, Spain will have to pay 6.7 million taxpayers money only in process costs.

Hoy, 50 organizaciones de Europa publicamos un vídeo sobre la lucha contra un proyecto de gas fósil en Eslovenia. 😡 La empresa británica Ascent Resources amenaza con demandar a Eslovenia en virtud del Tratado de la Carta de la Energía. Terrible. #NoECT
En el noreste de Eslovenia, Ascent Resources quiere extraer gas. La comunidad local se opone al proyecto y, debido a sus posibles impactos sobre la salud y la naturaleza, la agencia medioambiental de Eslovenia ha exigido a la empresa una evaluación del impacto ambiental. #NoECT
La empresa Ascent Resources amenaza con demandar a Eslovenia ante un tribunal privado en virtud del Tratado de la Carta de la Energía, solicitando una indemnización de 120 millones de euros por el lucro cesante del proyecto (afirma haber gastado 50 millones de EUR). #NoECT
