Ending the affair: How the industry lobby gutted Europe’s climate ambitions

19 March 2014

This briefing shows how fossil fuel and heavy industry interests used their privileged access, huge financial resources and insider influence to convince EU decision-makers to sacrifice ambitious climate action for 2030. 

It uses information gained from Freedom of Information requests to show just how close Europe’s dirtiest industries are to senior politicians and regulators and what influence this is having on the EU’s official climate change policy.
