The letter was sent to BUDG–ECON Joint Committee members ahead of a vote on Monday 9th regarding the use of Recovery and Resilience Facility funding for gas projects. ClientEarth advocates for the RRF to be in strict compliance with the EU’s climate laws.

It would put Member States and the RRF in clear breach of EU legal obligations.
