As the climate emergency deepens, forward-thinking governments are planning energy systems free from fossil fuels. Yet these positive changes risk being held back by trade deals and by billion-dollar investment court cases.

This briefing will take a deep dive into the effects of trade and investment policy on our ability to green the energy system.

The webinar will be chaired by Caroline Lucas MP and we are delighted to welcome the following speakers:

  • Juliet Davenport OBE, founder and former Chief Executive of Good Energy
  • Carolyn Deere Birkbeck, Senior Research Associate at the University of Oxford's Global Economic Governance Programme
  • Jean Blaylock, Campaigns and Policy Manager at Global Justice Now

Presentations will be followed by time for audience questions and discussion.
