Achieving a fossil-free recovery

This report looks at how governments should design their COVID-19 recovery support to the energy sector in order to achieve a fossil-free recovery that supports the achievement of the SDGs and net-zero commitments. First, it provides a snapshot of how governments have supported the energy sector in their COVID-19 recovery packages over the past year. It shows that while several countries have supported cleaner forms of energy, the largest share of the funding goes to fossil fuel-intensive sectors, adding to the already-high fossil fuel subsidies that governments provide annually.
