“Black Book EPH”

Greenpeace Germany

The state government of Brandenburg was involved in sales talks concerning Vattenfall’s former German lignite operations much sooner and more intensively than previously thought, according to Greenpeace Germany. And it failed to use its legal options to demand financial securities for the recultivation of affected areas. About 100 days after the sale of Vattenfall’s German lignite operations to Czech company EPH, Greenpeace has updated its “Black Book EPH” with details about the companies involved and information on the process surrounding the sale.
