Una oportunidad para impulsar la producción extensiva y agroecológica Leer el informe de Food & Water Action Europe y Amigos de la Tierra El Estado español ha vivido en los últimos años una auténtica burbuja del sector porcino y, en menor medida, del sector aviar, también de producción intensiva. Se trata de un modelo de […]
The Trans European Energy Infrastructure regulation (TEN-E), defining the criteria and infrastructure categories for Projects of Common Interest (PCIs), is under revision. This briefing looks at both the ongoing revision process and the costs of the current PCI list (the fifth list) still governed by previous TEN-E rules. It addresses the elephant in the room […]

The European Commission and its quest to let the gas industry write the book on hydrogen in Europe Read the new Food & Water Action Europe, Corporate Europe Observatory and Re:Common Hydrogen Hype report here.
The number of farms in the European Union has declined very rapidly in the past decades, largely as a result of disastrous agricultural and trade policies. At the same time, meat production in many EU countries is increasing, driven especially by exports. The remaining farms are becoming ever-larger with a lower diversity of animal breeds. This has seen a rise in factory farms, characterised by large numbers of animals being confined in crowded spaces with insufficient pastureland to feed the animals – meaning that feed has to be brought into the farm.
This briefing shows how the trans-European energy infrastructure (TEN-E) regulation has placed an obscure body advocating for vested gas industry interests at the heart of EU decision making on energy. The privileged role of the European Network of Transmission System Operators for Gas (ENTSO-G) – a body made up exclusively of gas industry interests, including […]
The petrochemical company Ineos is transforming into a dominant UK fossil fuel firm with oil and gas extraction, storage, processing and pipeline assets. Since its 1998 inception, Ineos has rapidly assembled a sprawling corporate empire by snapping up chemical factories and companies. But it also has garnered a chequered environmental record in its aggressive climb to become one of the world’s largest chemical conglomerates.
The goal of this toolkit is to provide legal arguments to activists in the European Union (EU) against the exploration and extraction of hydrocarbons (e.g., shale gas/oil, tight gas/oil, coal-bed methane) by referring to relevant articles of existing and binding EU law.
The private and secretive chemical company Ineos has been leading the charge the environmentally destructive method of fracking to the United Kingdom (UK) and mainland Europe. It’s a return to the past. Find out what we need to do.
