Energy giant AGL has launched legal action against environmental advocacy organisation Greenpeace Australia Pacific, following the launch of a Greenpeace campaign alleging AGL is Australia’s biggest corporate climate polluter.
SYDNEY, May 7, 2021 - A major new UN report released today reveals the urgent need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from methane, while the Federal Government continues to throw millions at the gas industry in pursuit of a ‘gas led recovery’ which Greenpeace Australia Pacific warns is fuelling dangerous climate change. 
Australia will not be able to achieve net-zero greenhouse gas emissions within a safe time frame unless AGL, Australia’s largest energy company, brings forward closure of its polluting coal assets, according to a new report released today by Greenpeace Australia Pacific.
MELBOURNE, 30 April 2021 - In response to Angus Taylor’s announcement that the Federal Government wants coal power stations to be paid for their capacity rather than their output, Greenpeace Australia pacific spokesperson Nelli Stevenson said that this is “fossil fuel ideology gone mad”.
The Federal Government’s plans to build a polluting, expensive gas plant are a waste of public funds, when all evidence shows that renewable energy backed by storage will provide cheaper, cleaner power, says Greenpeace Australia Pacific.
SYDNEY, April 22 2021 - Following today's resignation of AGL CEO Brett Redman, who oversaw a loss-making expansion of the company's polluting coal fleet, Greenpeace Australia Pacific has urged AGL to follow the market and hasten its switch to renewable energy. 
Energy giant Stanwell’s announcement today that it will move away from coal sends a clear message to AGL, Australia’s biggest coal company, that the future is renewable, says Greenpeace Australia Pacific.
