Platform has spent years analysing the impacts of UKEF fossil fuel financing. We said this in response to the news that UKEF is ending their support for fossil fuel projects:
At last the UK government is stopping finance for the most polluting and harmful projects around the world. But we know that the UK Government is still acting as the personal broker for big polluters like BP and Shell, lobbying for their interests at trade talks and diplomatic meetings. If the Government is serious about tackling climate change, this support should be redirected to creating good, green jobs in zero-carbon industries, and supporting a just transition for workers whose livelihoods depend on fossil fuels now.
