Mockup of WeMove Europe and SumOfUs cycle-powered billboard

 

Next week the EU votes on a new law that would funnel billions into dirty energy projects...and ultimately Vladimir Putin's war chest. It's a massive gift to Putin, and we need to stop it!

So we’re organising a last big push to shore up the votes we need in the European Parliament to stop this terrible mistake.

We've got mockups for 8 massive mobile billboards -- if enough of us chip in today, we could have them ready in time for a team of cyclists to circle the European Parliament with them for the three days before the vote and deliver our petition to the Members of European Parliament (MEPs).

Can you rush a donation today to block this law and stop billions going to Putin and polluters?

The EU is making new rules to define what counts as a “green” investment – and MEPs will vote next week on a law that will lay out these rules. It's called the EU Taxonomy.

But Big Polluters have hijacked the proposed law. They’re pushing to get fossil gas and nuclear labelled “green” so they can divert billions of euros reserved for renewables like solar and wind to fund their dirty projects. Even worse, an investigation uncovered that Russia would be one of the main beneficiaries of the planned addition of gas and nuclear to the EU’s list of sustainable investments. It could earn €4 billion more per year from the inclusion of gas alone, handing Putin more power over the EU and more money to fuel the war in Ukraine.

It would be a devastating blow for investment in renewables and the people of Ukraine if the law passed – not to mention it would worsen the climate crisis and hike up our energy bills. 

But we can stop this from happening!

Ongoing campaigning has helped us get a lot of MEPs and people on our side – and we’ve already gotten two important European Parliament committees to reject the draft law.

Now we, and our friends at WeMove, just need your help to fund one final push to stop this disastrous law and cut off a funding stream for dirty fuel projects and Putin’s war. We're so close, Vladimir – can we count on your help?

Over 120,000 SumOfUs members like you pushed the European Commission back in 2019 and 2020 to crack down on fake green investments in the banking industry. Now’s our chance to join other activists from across Europe and beyond and send a message to MEPs right before they vote that they simply cannot ignore.

Thanks for all that you do,
Yasmin, Eoin and the SumOfUs team
