Dear Colleague,
By now you likely have received an invitation from the Sierra Club to attend a briefing focusing on the impact free trade agreements currently under negotiation may have on U.S. energy and climate policy. This is a unique opportunity to hear from environmental advocates from both sides of the Atlantic.
Please join us for a discussion of the energy and climate implications of the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP). Panelists will also give an update on the implementation of the EU Fuel Quality Directive (FQD), a climate policy designed to reduce the carbon intensity of fuels on the EU market.
