Parliamentary briefing on the ongoing threat of the the Energy Charter Treaty to climate justice.
Frontispiece ECT briefing
  • Fossil fuel companies are already using the Energy Charter Treaty to challenge climate action and the risk of such cases is growing. The IPCC has warned of “regulatory chill”.
  • Attempts to reform and ‘modernise’ the treaty have failed to make it compatible with international climate goals.
  • A co-ordinated withdrawal from the ECT by the UK and others would be the most effective way to ensure the treaty cannot continue to pose a threat to climate action.
