Fossil free Wales

We're in a climate crisis, and we need to reduce our carbon emissions.

Rainbow over hills


It's clear that new fossil fuel developments, including extending existing coal mines and extracting new oil, coal and gas that will add more emissions to the atmosphere, aren't compatible with tackling climate change.

We're supporting local communities, and with help from our legal and planning team.
