Climate change: a critical challenge calling for a global response

Climate change and energy demand

Answering the growing global demand for energy while at the same time limiting the emission of greenhouse gases is one of the most critical challenges of our time. The EU refining industry can contribute to effectively address this dilemma.

FuelsEurope recognises that climate change is real and warrants action.

FuelsEurope supports the efforts of the international community to address the risks of climate change and believes that effective measures must be undertaken by all significant world economies under an effective and clear international agreement.

At the same time, the growing global demand of secure, reliable and affordable energy must be addressed in order to fight poverty in several regions of the world and to allow access to higher living standards to a rising middle class in many developing countries.
