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

Yesterday the Dutch parliament decided they want to exit the climate wrecking Energy Charter Treaty.

Here is why this is a great move for the climate movement 👇🧵
The Energy Charter Treaty (ECT) is a major obstacle to tackling climate change.

Through the Investor State Dispute Settlement (ISDS) clause, the treaty allows energy multinationals to sue governments for adopting climate policies that potentially limit their profits.
Globally, at least USD 570 billion has been paid out by governments.

12% of these ISDS cases have originated in the Netherlands.

The Netherlands has also been a target of litigation under the Energy Charter Treaty, with 2 cases concerning a whopping €2.4 billion.

"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

Comment est-ce possible ?

Ces multinationales poursuivent les Etats devant des tribunaux d’arbitrage, mis en place par des accords de commerce et d'investissement, qui constituent une justice parallèle qui leur permet de ralentir, bloquer ou renchérir les politiques climatiques
Dans une publication, @AitecIPAM @attac_fr & @GlobalJusticeUK donnent l'exemple de 5 entreprises de l’énergie qui ont décidé d'user de ce droit d'impunité pour réclamer des milliards $, mettant en danger des régulations vitales pour lutter contre le réchauffement climatique
