deCOALonize press release on Prince Charle’s speech at WEF

Prince Charles’s speech at the 2020 World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos, Switzerland was a rallying call to world leaders to put the people and planet at the heart of global value creation. His speech followed another strong speech by the United Kingdom Prime Minister, Boris Johnson where he told the African leaders at the UK – Africa summit that no British taxpayer money will be used to mine or burn coal for electricity.

The Kenyan government is backing a plan to build the first-ever coal plant despite an impressive renewable energy sector. Our press release is written in solidarity with the UK leaders against this backdrop.
