ANZ, stop funding companies building new and expansionary coal, oil and gas projects
ANZ performed the worst in our Australian-first benchmark of banks' climate commitments.
Banks are powerful players in our economy – behind nearly every home loan, business, major infrastructure project, or other development is a bank financing the activity. They decide what projects get financed, and which don’t.
Banks could set Australia on a path of protecting climate and nature.
Instead ANZ continues to provide financial support to new and expansionary coal, oil and gas projects, despite the pressing need to swiftly reduce greenhouse gas emissions and mitigate climate damage.
Banks can help solve the climate crisis, rather than fueling it. Tell ANZ why you care about action on climate change and ask them to take urgent action to end their support for fossil fuel expansion. We've written a message for you, but feel free to personalise it. If you're a customer, tell them how long you've banked with them.
ANZ must engage more actively in climate change policy. By continuing to finance fossil fuel companies, the bank inadvertently contributes to the perpetuation of a carbon-intensive economy that undermines our collective efforts to combat climate damage.
We're all in this together. Or at least we should be.
