Stop greenwashing! Action instead of words...

We need protection of our environment and jobs!


In 2015 the Paris Agreement was set at COP21, to comply with the 2 degree limit of global warming. This received a lot of attention from the media and the public. Since then greenhouse gases (CO2 and methane) have continued to increase worldwide.

The climate promises made by governments and multinational corporations and multinational corporations turned out to be nothing but greenwashing.

The climate cannot read the agreement; the overheating of the planet will only stop when CO2 pollution decreases. 2021 has been a record year for environmental catastropes so far. This is a signal that there is a need for a fundamental change in politics if we waqnt to prevent a worldwide environmental disaster.

The september elections in Germany have been called fateful. Right now it does not look like the next German government will be able to change politics radically, but this is necessary to save the planet. Industry and corporations not only destroy the environment out of greed for profit, but now also want to cut tens of thousands of jobs in Germany.

After the elections, layoffs have been announced in many companies:

OPEL Eisenach, VW Wolfsburg, Bosch Munich, UNIPER Gelsenkirchen, to name a few.

We are supposedly too expensive, too unproductive, too superfluous.

We are taking our destiny into our own hands! We need jobs and protection of the environment at the same time.

We are fighting for a reduction of working hours with full wage compensation, and the creation of millions of new jobs needed to save the climate according to the Paris Agreement.

The joint struggle of the workers´ and environmental movements is developing. This is a chance to become a superior force against banks and corporations.

In Germany the Umweltgewerkschaft (environmental union) is calling (to- gether with miners, Kumpel für AUF) for a shutdown of the coal-fired power plant "DATTELN4" in North Rhine-Westphalia on 6.11.2021. The commissioning of the power plant was illegal; the burning of coal and other fossil fuels has to stop if we want to prevent a global environmental disaster


A world in which people live in unity with nature is one of the goals of the Umweltgewerkschaft / environmental union.

We stand for the unification of the workers´ movement and the environmental movement and we are looking for international connections.
