Fossil Fuel Non Proliferation Treaty


Position description

The Fossil Fuel Non-Proliferation Treaty Initiative is a global effort to foster international cooperation to accelerate a transition to renewable energy for everyone, end the expansion of coal, oil and gas, and equitably phase out existing production in keeping with what science shows is needed to address the climate crisis. It builds on decades of calls and campaigns for a fossil fuel phase out and fair energy transition by government, civil society, Indigenous, grassroots and other leaders – particularly from the Global South and aims to compliment other movements tactics such as divestment, debt relief and fossil fuel bans as well as the work being advanced by the Beyond Oil and Gas Alliance and the Power Past Coal Alliance.  

The Fossil Fuel Non-Proliferation Treaty is not an organisation, it’s an idea — one backed by a growing global network of governments, civil society organisations, academics, scientists, youth activists, health professionals, faith institutions, Indigenous peoples and hundreds of thousands of other citizens globally. Our mission is to garner international support for a binding treaty that regulates and ultimately phases out fossil fuel activities worldwide. Our goals are to grow and strengthen a diverse and representative bloc of countries calling for a Treaty; scale one of the largest global campaigns on fossil fuels with targeted strategies for priority regions; nurture a diverse and more deeply engaged directed network that is supported to advocate for a Treaty; and produce compelling storytelling to build support for a Treaty in target countries.

Given the endorsement of the Fossil Fuel Treaty by more than 20 Irish CSOs, a growing number of Local Authorities, and a successful Dáil motion, as well as the Irish Government’s continuous strong backing for Small-Island Developing States, robust climate legislation, its established expertise in nuclear non-proliferation at the UN, and the potential for Ireland to advocate for fossil fuel phase-out at the UN following its recent UN Security Council membership, the country is well-positioned to take a leadership role. This presents a significant opportunity to leverage these advancements and strive towards Ireland becoming the first EU member state to formally endorse the Treaty in 2024-2025. To further our objectives, we are seeking a capable contractor to scale our campaign efforts specifically in Ireland.
