European Fossil Fuel Subsidies Awards

Counter Balance supports the European Fossil Fuel Subsidies Awards, launched by CAN Europe.

Most governments don’t like to talk about the fact that they are giving money to fossil fuels, and in some cases they do what they can to hide them. It is simply unfair to European citizens to keep these subsidies in the dark, hiding them behind nice words of climate action. The aim of the European Fossil Fuel Subsidies Awards is to put these subsidies in the spotlight and increase the pressure to phase them out.

By nominating a subsidy for an Award, everyone can contribute to exposing the hypocrisy of governments and public institutions promises’ to tackle climate action while at the same time funding fossil fuels.
