End Coal Finance Twitter storm on June 11

In just over a week, governments in the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) will meet to discuss financing through their Export Credit Agencies – public agencies that fund or guarantee private corporations from their home country to invest or export overseas.
These governments have the opportunity to end Export Credit Agency financing for coal – a key part of the larger effort to end public financing for fossil fuels and high carbon projects.
Between 2007 and 2013 national Export Credit Agencies from OECD countries provided at least $32 billion for coal projects abroad – over 60 percent of total public support for coal over this period!
Ahead of these meetings, we need to push the governments of Germany, France and Japan to support a call to end ECA support for coal. We also need to convince Finland, which chairs the OECD working group.
We’ll send sample tweets and materials (blogs, press releases, infographics) around on June 10. Please send help us tweet them out on June 11, and let me know if you have any questions or would like more information.
