Climate justice Building an international movement for climate justice and a fossil free world, in solidarity with communities affected by climate change

Shell’s climate ambitions are nowhere near enough to prevent further global warming, according to new research by the OCI (Oil Change International). The OCI examined the climate plans of 8 oil giants. It found that if their plans are implemented, it will be impossible to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees.

To change our energy system we need everyone

We are facing a convergence of crises. All seem interconnected. From our climate to our health, economy, society, and democracy.

Communities are already experiencing the impacts of man-made climate change, especially in the Global South, but also increasingly here in Europe. The overconsumption of resources is contributing to the crisis and increasing inequality within and between countries.

Europe was largely responsible for causing climate change. Friends of the Earth Europe believes European and other rich industrialised countries must do their fair share to act first and fastest to combat it in ways that do not deepen social injustice.

Real solutions to climate change are available. We are working to strengthen a movement for climate justice and create a fossil-free Europe.
