Fortum´s credibility as climate leader at risk: Will Fortum/Uniper inaugurate the new coal plant Datteln IV despite the worsening climate crisis?
Fortum/Uniper webinar 2/4

The German Government’s announced coal phase out plan ignores the Paris Agreement, the national climate goals and the recommendations of the so-called coal commission. It would even allow Fortum/Uniper to open the new coal plant Datteln IV, which would send a disastrous signal to the world: Despite the exacerbating climate crisis and while climate scientist call for a rapid coal phase out, one of the richest countries in the world wants to connect a new coal plant to the grid. In fact, this would be a declaration of climate bankruptcy for both the German and the Finnish Government, who haven’t done anything to prevent this.
This webinar will have a look at the German coal phase-out law and provide background information about the coal plant Datteln 4 and the consequences, if it would be put into operation next summer.
