Massive coal projects threaten to destroy our Great Barrier Reef. Indian mining giant Adani needs billions to finance its Abbot Point coal terminal and Carmichael mega-mine.
Tell the CEOs of ANZ, Commonwealth Bank, NAB and Westpac to say no to Reef destruction today! If they publicly rule out funding this project, it will be almost impossible for Adani to push forward with its plans.
I'm concerned about the plans to expand the Abbot Point coal port and associated mines because of the damage they will cause to our Great Barrier Reef and our climate.
I'm asking that you publicly rule out any involvement in the financing of the new coal terminals in the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area and any associated rail infrastructure and mines in the Galilee Basin.
I know that major international investment banks have stated that the impacts on the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area of expanding coal terminals at Abbot Point means they won't fund the proposed port expansion. The Great Barrier Reef is a global icon and banks around the world are acting to ensure they are not part of projects that could cause it damage. It's time for the Australian banks to do the same.
Thank you for your time and attention.
