Inspired by the 1968 Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons, a group of organisations launched “The Fossil Fuel Non-Proliferation Treaty” (FFNPT), a global initiative to phase out fossil fuels and support a just transition. A FFNPT would be a companion treaty to the UNFCCC/Paris Agreement, focused on winding down the supply of fossil fuels.
This treaty should foster international cooperation to phase out fossil fuels production and fast track the transition to safer and more effective energy solutions. It calls for cooperation in three main areas:
Organisations, companies, individuals and governments at all levels can endorse the Fossil Fuels Non-Proliferation Treaty. The global campaign sees support from municipal governments as a key element of building the profile and momentum of this initiative.
Do you want to pitch the Treaty to your local government or draft a motion for your council? Have a look at the cities campaign resources here.
