The International Association of Oil and Gas Producers (IOGP) is actively and negatively lobbying EU climate change policy. While IOGP appears to have stated support for the Paris Agreement, evidence suggests it has not supported GHG emissions reductions in line with achieving a 2°C target, citing energy poverty and cost concerns to justify inaction. Despite supporting the EU ETS as the cornerstone of European climate legislation, IOGP emphasized carbon leakage concerns in 2014-15 consultations to lobby against reforms to increase the effectiveness of the scheme, including the 'back-loading' proposal and reducing free allowances for offshore platforms. Between 2014-2016, IOGP also opposed binding energy efficiency and renewable energy targets under the EU 2030 Climate and Energy Framework, calling instead for a single GHG emissions target. In a 2016 consultation response to the European Commission, IOGP also opposed all renewable energy support schemes, favouring a 'phase out of all form of subsidies'. However, despite supporting the substitution of coal with gas, IOGP has directly lobbied EU policymakers IOGP directly for policies to increase EU oil and gas production and reduce fossil fuel regulations.
