Green NGO ClientEarth has warned the EU Commission it would be against EU law to classify gas as a ‘green’ fuel, in its upcoming rules on ‘taxonomy’, which are meant to steer private investors towards climate-friendly firms. “If it were adopted, this is likely to increase investments in activities utilising natural gas and would be in total contradiction with the commitments undertaken by the European Commission,” it said, Reuters reports.
