Coles and Woolworths both claim they’re doing good things for our climate.

So why are these supermarkets both card-carrying members of one of Australia’s shadiest climate-wrecking lobby groups: the Business Council of Australia (BCA)? It just doesn't check out. 

Over the past few decades the BCA has strategically undermined a long list of climate policies in Australia. As a result, climate pollution in this country is going up, not down like it must if we are to continue enjoying life on our beautiful planet.

By weakening the BCA’s membership, we can neutralise their influence over climate policy in Australia – and get back on track in building a future that’s good for everyone and every living thing.

Sign the open letter now asking Coles and Woolworths to leave the climate-wrecking BCA:

As customers, shareholders and employees of Coles and Woolworths, we call on the supermarket giants to leave the Business Council of Australia (BCA) – it continues to undermine climate policy in Australia and advocate for the weakening of environmental laws.

We are concerned about the climate crisis and want action.

On our current climate path, which the BCA is fostering, you simply won’t have any groceries to sell in the foreseeable future! The US military have said the 4-6+ degree temperature rise path we’re on is utterly incompatible with civilized society. Scientists say we’ll fall back to only being able to support less than a billion people (the other 6-8 billion will die ugly deaths). We can still possibly avoid the worst of this – but not by following the BCA. Please stand up for our future.

Action on climate change needs to affect all areas of Coles and Woolworths, including their membership of BCA, their banking and insurance, cutting emissions in their supply chain, cutting waste in store and offering customers more energy neutral, plastic packaging free products. We all have so far to go in getting really serious about taking action.

It’s time big business recognise the climate crisis that threatens the world, and support the individuals who are calling for change. After all, it is us, the individuals that support them by buying their products

It seems the BCA is undermining strong climate action which is needed for a healthy and prosperous future. We need solutions and positivism not laggards to achieve action.

The BCA’s anti-climate action stance does not align with the sustainability goals of your supermarket chain. As a customer, I am asking you to cut ties with the BCA and show leadership on climate action.
