The Swedish government recently allowed state-owned company Vattenfall to sell their coal reserves in Germany — a decision which means the release of at least 24x Sweden’s annual carbon emissions if that coal is burnt. In response, people are pledging to organise and escalate actions to keep fossil fuels in the ground.
Zero Offshore Drilling
The Obama Administration just released the latest draft of their offshore drilling plan. Thanks to grassroots pressure, the plan no longer includes an expansion of drilling off the Atlantic seaboard, as had been expected. That’s a win for people power — but a partial one. The current version of this plan still allows drilling in the Arctic and off the Gulf Coast. And that’s still unacceptable. We’re calling on President Obama to say no to all new offshore drilling. That includes zero new drilling in the Arctic and zero new drilling off the Gulf Coast.
Stop the TPP!
The Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement — a trade deal being negotiated between dozens of countries — is the fossil fuel industry’s latest tool to shut down climate action, and we’re joining a huge coalition to stop it.
The TPP would give foreign fossil fuel corporations the right to sue city, state and national governments if climate action hurts their profits. It’s an enormous corporate power grab and it threatens to undermine climate progress around the world.
Switch off Tata Mundra
The World Bank refuses to recognize its own policy violations and the serious impacts of financing a deadly coal plant in Mundra, India. Let’s put pressure on World Bank’s president, Dr. Jim Kim, and make them stop ignoring the facts.
Société Genérale: kick your coal habit
With banks publicly stating they will reduce their investments in coal, it is now time for private banks such as Société Générale to make this pledge as well.
Ban Divestment? No way.
Coal companies in Australia are pushing the government to make our fossil fuel divestment campaign illegal. We need your help to push back!

Rampal plant in Bangladesh
Join the struggle to stop Rampal coal plant — a massive dirty project that could create devastating and irreversible impacts on the beautiful forests of the Sundarbans.
Stop(ped) the Keystone XL Pipeline
We’re joining with organizations and communities throughout North America in a united campaign to stop the Keystone XL pipeline — the fuse to the largest carbon bomb on the planet.
The Fossil Free campaign is building a global movement to divest from fossil fuels. If it’s wrong to wreck the climate, it’s wrong to profit from that wreckage.
