Fossil fuels

Img 2539 20copy

Much of the activity since the very start of Zelena akcija/FoE Croatia has been focused on stopping harmful fossil fuel projects, primarily due to the impact on climate, environment, health and human rights.

Human activities related to the use of fossil fuels (oil, coal and gas), which have significantly increased the concentration of greenhouse gases in the Earth's atmosphere, are the primary cause of climate change. Therefore, a large part of our activities is aimed at stopping harmful fossil fuel projects in Croatia.

Also, one of the goals is to stop harmful nuclear projects in the Republic of Croatia. Namely, the extraction, transport and processing of uranium produces emissions. The long and complex process of building nuclear power plants also emits CO2, as well as the demolition of decommissioned plants. In addition, nuclear waste must also be transported and stored under strict conditions - and emissions must be taken into account here as well.

Some of the most significant results of the work on this topic:

  • stopping the construction of a coal-fired power plant in Lukovo Šugarje (1999);
  • stopping the oil project "Družba Adria" - export of Russian oil to the world market through the port of Omišalj in Croatia (2007);
  • stopping the construction of the Plomin C coal-fired power plant (2016);
  • prevention of oil and gas exploration in the Adriatic (2016).


  • SOS for Velebit (1997-1999)
  • SOS for the Adriatic - “Družba Adria” project (2003-2007)
  • “Stop Plomin C” (2011-2016)
  • SOS for the Adriatic (2013-2016)
  • “Against LNG” (2018-today)
