The Sustainable Developments Goals (SDGs) were unanimously endorsed and adopted by United Nations member states in 2015.
Fuelling Failure is the first report to highlight the dangers fossil fuels pose to the entire sustainable development agenda. It draws on more than 400 academic articles, civil society reports and case studies from affected communities to examine how the exploration, extraction, transportation and combustion of fossil fuels, and the conduct of the fossil fuel industry, are sabotaging efforts to achieve the SDGs. The report sets out a way forward that aligns ambitious climate action with efforts to revitalise the sustainable development agenda. This includes an international framework to coordinate a fast and fair phase out of oil, gas and coal while accelerating the adoption of clean energy and other low-carbon technologies with wealthy nations leading the way.
