Ask the government to keep its promise to stop funding dirty projects overseas

take action

Last year the UK government promised to stop funding polluting oil and gas projects abroad. It was a ground-breaking victory, thanks to action from people like you.

But now, just a few weeks later, the government might delay its promise and include loopholes allowing it to keep spending money on dirty industries across the planet.

This means taxpayers’ money – your money – could still be used to drive devastating climate breakdown.

Thankfully, the government has opened a public consultation to hear opinions on how and when to stop funding oil and gas abroad.

We only have until 8 February to take this opportunity. Will you respond to the consultation and ask the government to stand by its promise? We’ve written a template email that you can edit, so it should only take a minute.

Please ask the government to:

  • End funding for oil and gas projects overseas as soon as possible, not months or years in the future.
  • Remove any exclusions or exemptions that will allow oil or gas projects to be funded.
  • Pause all the oil and gas projects that are currently being considered, so no project is financed before the new policy starts.
  • Make this new policy as ambitious as possible to set a strong and inspiring example to other countries. 

Please respond to the consultation and ask the government to stand by its promise
