The CAN Energy working group addresses advocacy and policy work around fossil fuel supply and production and the urgent need for a transition to 100% clean, safe, and renewable energy.

Energy is a cross-cutting issue that will deal with topics within the UNFCCC, but also beyond as they pertain to meeting the Paris Agreement goals.

The group’s broad objectives are articulated in CAN’s position on the need for restrictions on fossil fuel supply and include pressing for a just and equitable managed decline of fossil fuel production in line with keeping warming well below 2ºC and pursuing efforts to limit it to 1.5ºC.
