Climate Alliance supports international fossil fuel non-proliferation initiative

With the Fossil Fuel Non-Profileration Treaty, Climate Alliance now supports international demands for a stop on fossil energies. Inspired by historical treaties such as the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty or the Montreal Protocol for the protection of the ozone layer, the initiative calls for a new multilateral agreement to stop the expansion of fossil fuel production. The demands are supported by 101 Nobel laureates, more than 3,000 scientists, the EU Parliament, more than 1,300 civil society organisations and an increasing number of cities and towns.

More than 70 cities worldwide have already joined the campaign. In Germany, the Cities of Bonn and Marburg have already adopted resolutions to this effect. Climate Alliance therefore calls on all interested cities and towns to draft a motion or start a campaign calling on their municipality to support the treaty. All information on the city campaign and possible wording aids are available online.
