Fossil-Fuel Subsidy Reform and the Road to Paris

Fossil-fuel subsidy reform offers a major opportunity for sustainable development. As countries prepare for a major climate change conference in Paris, the International Institute for Sustainable Development makes the case that phasing out fossil-subsidies is a priority.

The Friends group was formed in June 2010 to support G20 and APEC leaders’ commitments to phase out inefficient fossil fuel subsidies. The Friends encourage the G20 and APEC to implement their initiative as soon as possible, with maximum ambition and transparency.
