The world’s biggest banks won’t touch it

Dear friend,

The world’s biggest investment banks are abandoning coal port expansion on the Great Barrier Reef.

Just this morning – the Wall Street Journal reported that Citibank – one of the largest investment banks in the world – won’t finance the Abbot Point coal port expansion on the Reef.* It also reported that other major US investment banks are distancing themselves from Abbot Point.

Click here to pitch in for a full page advertisement in The Australian calling on the Big 4 Banks to join international banks in ruling out involvement at Abbot Point.

This is huge! Abbot Point and its associated mega-mines in the Galilee Basin would wreck the Reef and triple Australia’s emissions, locking us into at least 30 more years of coal-fired power.

As US banks join European banks like HSBC, Deutsche Bank, the Royal Bank of Scotland and Barclays in ruling out involvement in this damaging project, it’s time for Australia’s Big 4 Banks to join them.

The CEO’s of Australia’s Big 4 banks have received messages from over 100,000 Australians, asking them to rule out financing for Abbot Point. But still they remain silent, so it’s time to step things up!

Help us run an ad telling the Big 4 Australian Banks that it’s time to rule out the Abbot Point coal port expansion.

And if you’re keen to do more and live in Melbourne or Sydney, why not join an event delivering 15,000 messages collected from customers to the Big 4.

  • Melbourne – 8:30am this Friday October 31st. RSVP here.
  • Sydney – 9:30am Friday November 7thRSVP here.

Together, let’s raise our voices ever louder until Australia’s Big 4 Banks do the right thing for the Reef, our climate and our future by ruling out coal port expansion at Abbot Point.

Yours with thanks,

Charlie for 350 Australia
