HEAL has sent a letter to EU energy ministers ahead of their meeting on 27 June 2022, calling on them to

  • Commit to a timeline and an ambitious deadline for the phasing out of all fossil fuels,
    including fossil gas. A continued reliance on fossil fuels undermines the EU’s zero pollution
    commitment included in the Green Deal, and accelerates climate change, when alternatives
    exist.
  • Avoid false solutions in the process of becoming independent from Russian fossil fuels.
    This includes investing into new fossil gas infrastructure, the promotion of wood burning or
    prolonged coal power use, to name a few.
  • Fast track renewables and energy savings, especially in transport and buildings. Energy
    savings, both the reduction in demand and greater efficiency, could bring huge health
    benefits and address energy poverty.
