“Climate change is escalating rapidly and will continue to do so unless stopped. We are raising the alarm because we only have a very short window of time to do what must be done.”
As the Asia Clean Energy Forum (ACEF) 2018 drew to a close today, climate justice groups reiterated their call for a quick end to coal and other fossil fuels and a fast transition to 100% renewable energy.
We are from the Philippine Movement for Climate Justice (PMCJ) and the Asian Peoples’ Movement for Debt and Development (APMDD). We represent grassroots communities, social movements, climate justice campaigners and civil society networks in the Philippines as well as in other countries in the Asia-Pacific region.
On your Annual Stockholders Meeting today, we appeal to your sense of responsibility and accountability to the Filipino people whom you service with electricity, and peoples of other countries who are also affected by your company's actions. We bring your attention to the life-threatening risks faced by our nation, our people and our entire planet due to climate change that, among others, is brought about by the reliance on fossil fuels for energy.
