ANZ has a climate problem. The bank is planning to have $8.7 billion invested in fossil fuels by 2030– that’s almost double what the other big banks are investing.

Bushfires, drought – the climate crisis is here, now, and ANZ must do the right thing by all of us and shift the billions of dollars they are responsible for out of burning and digging fossil fuels like coal. 

Add your name to the petition.

To ANZ:

"As concerned citizens, customers, shareholders, and employees, we call on ANZ to stop financing the digging and burning of fossil fuels. The first steps are:

  1. divesting from thermal coal by 2030 or earlier;
  2. divesting from oil & gas in line with the Paris climate agreement;
  3. not investing in new or expansion coal, gas & oil projects;

Burning fossil fuels is the biggest driver of climate damage. We are concerned about the climate crisis and want action."

Just why is the bank the worst in responding to the clear needs to work to improve climate change ?

As an ANZ customer I am outraged at their lack of action in the climate change issue. I will be changing banks unless they reconsider where money goes
Tim 2020-10-29 12:06:10 +1100
ANZ – It’s time to get out of supporting the fossil fuels which are destroying the future of our planet. Please stop investing in coal, oil, gas, and move on to the future we need – RENEWABLES. Show some leadership.

As an ANZ customer for 30 years I will be changing my bank since your the only big 4 bank that has not committed to divesting from thermal coal, not good enough for all our future’s

ANZ you are the only one of the Big 4 banks who has not committed to divesting from thermal coal and you are still planning to invest in oil and gas at almost double the rate of any other big bank. I am a customer with a home loan and will now look to moving it to a much more environmentally friendly bank who understands the urgency of climate action. I will be urging all friends and relatives to do the same – and that is boycott the ANZ bank

Time to look forward rather that living in the past. It is scientific FACT that fossil fuels are killing our planet and inevitably our futures. Time to wake up !!!!

It’s about time you caught up with how the majority of Australians think. We are not interested in fossil fuels.
We have a climate problem which is enhanced by fossil fuels. We want to see Big Business investing in new ways of providing energy. This can be an entire new industry. We need to work WITH the Paris Agreement-and get moving now.

Please consider committing to sustainable resources before it’s too late…

I demand better of ANZ on social policy
Stop financing the digging and burning of fossil fuels that wreck our climate.
Ros 2020-10-29 12:03:15 +1100
ANZ must stop such irresponsible, dangerous and thoughtless investment. Their behaviour is unforgiveable. I have been an ANZ customer for 34 years, but will change my bank if, in the next 6 months, they do not divest themselves of such environmentally and socially inappropriate investments. Their actions are indefensible.
Lynn 2020-10-29 12:03:15 +1100
Its time to invest in climate future instead of climate destruction! Stand out as a leader
Gillian 2020-10-29 12:02:36 +1100
Please do the responsible thing and plan to divest your interests in fossil fuels. The future lies with renewables and we have a responsibility to current and future generations to face this reality and invest.
Lisa 2020-10-29 12:02:32 +1100
ANZ, please stop financing the digging and burning of fossils that wreck our climate. You are by far the worst climate polluter of the big 4 banks #ANZClimateProblem

We’ve long believed ANZ’s core values were aligned with our own. News that ANZ supports investment in 19th-century fossil fuels is a sad reflection on recent changes in ANZ’s banking practices. It’s time the ANZ joined Australia’s other large banks… and divested itself of thermal coal, oil and gas.
