The risks of deep-sea gas drilling are too great

Woodside's Burrup Hub gas project is the most climate-polluting project currently proposed in Australia. If there's an accident, it could impact seven different marine parks and protected areas, each home to thousands of whales, sharks, turtles, fish and corals.

Saved the Bight

In 2020, after a relentless campaign, the Norwegian oil giant Equinor withdrew its plans to drill for oil in the Great Australian Bight. This comes after Chevron and BP also withdrew their plans thanks to the pressure from Greenpeace and local communities.

Exposed dirty power

In 2019 we uncovered the federal government’s shocking vested interests in the coal industry, which has stifled effective and necessary action to fight climate change.

Turtle Plastic

Ended single use plastic bags

In 2018, Australia's two major supermarkets Coles and Woolworths committed to phasing out single-use plastic bags and made further commitments to reducing plastic in their supply chains.
