Europe Beyond Coal

Who we are

The Europe Beyond Coal campaign was established in July 2017, with the goal of ensuring coal is phased out throughout Europe by 2030 at the latest.

 

The EBC secretariat supports and coordinates the Europe Beyond Coal campaign with civil society groups working across the European continent, including the European Union, Western Balkans, Turkey, and the UK. It is overseen by a Campaign Steering Committee and has its office in Berlin, and funded by the European Climate Foundation, ClimateWorks and the Sandler Foundation. It is legally a part of Climate Action Network Europe, based in Brussels. EBC has sister campaigns in the US, Australia, Korea and Japan.

A coal-free Europe is inevitable, and coming fast. This needs to be matched by an exit from fossil gas. The best way to protect people, communities and nature from the devastating impacts from burning fossil fuels is a fair transformation of Europe’s energy system to one fuelled by renewable energy, with the power sector going green by 2035. The sooner it happens the better chance we have for a safer, healthier and fairer future for us all.

LET'S MEET

THE SECRETARIAT

Given the unprecedented scale of the problems we face and the short timeframe we have to fix them, we are pooling our time, energy, and resources to accelerate the transition to a renewables-based energy future for all, for a Europe Beyond Coal.

PARTNERS

Europe Beyond Coal supports and coordinates work with civil society groups working across the European continent, including the European Union, the Western Balkans, Turkey and the UK. Our partners have already had a lot of success moving Europe beyond coal, but there is a lot more to do to speed the transition to a better future for all. A fossil-free, renewables-powered Europe is inevitable, and coming fast. Together, we have the power to bring this better future forward.
