Go Fossil Free

Securing a safe climate means that 80% of all existing fossil fuel reserves must remain in the ground—yet many of our institutions are investing in these reserves. Australia is one of the most carbon-intense economies in the world, yet we are rich in renewable energy resources.


Galilee Coal

Plans are underway to develop nine mega coal mines in Queensland’s Galilee Basin, five of which would be larger than any mine in operation in Australia today. The mines would triple our emissions and require construction of the world’s largest coal port at Abbot Point in the Great Barrier Reef.


Leard Blockade

This campaign is uniting a powerful movement — farmers, Traditional Owners, doctors, environmental groups, religious leaders and many others — to stop the construction of the huge Maules Creek Coal Mine in the endangered Leard State Forest.


Keep W.A. Gas in the Ground

Sitting beneath some of the most precious, fertile and culturally significant places in WA is a vast swathe of unconventional gas. We need your help to grow a strong movement of supporters who are ready to: stand with communities on the front line, break political support for unconventional gas and stop investment in these projects.

Over 670,000 call on US Ex-Im Bank to reject Galilee coal project

Washington, D.C.—Activists from a coalition of environmental groups delivered over 670,000 petition signatures to the U.S. Export-Import Bank (Ex-Im Bank) today to call on the bank to publicly reject financing for the controversial Carmichael coal mining and export project in Australia. Activists rallied in front of Ex-Im Bank headquarters wearing blue clothing and clownfish hats and holding a coral reef-themed banner to demand that U.S. taxpayer dollars not be used to bankroll the project, which threatens Australia’s iconic Great Barrier Reef, as well as the global climate.


Pressure Builds for UK’s Standard Chartered Bank to refuse investment to Great Barrier Reef coal project

London, 9th May 2015 - Civil society groups are this week ramping up public pressure on Standard Chartered Bank to end its involvement with a controversial Australian mining project. Groups including Greenpeace, and SumOfUs have launched a joint effort calling for Standard Chartered to rule out finance for the Carmichael mega mine and any coal projects associated with port expansion on the Great Barrier Reef, with activities kicking off in Europe, Asia and Australia. The Carmichael coal mine would be one of the biggest mines in the world and by far the biggest coal mine ever built in Australia.
