Despite publicly championing the Paris Climate Agreement, since 2015 ANZ bank have loaned over $7 billion dollars to fossil fuel projects. Worse still, these loans include a 50% spike in NEW climate-wrecking fossil fuel projects.
When the difference between 1.5°C and 2°C is life and death for millions of people, this sort of behaviour is criminal. ANZ’s business-as-usual approach puts us on track for 3.5°C warming.
If we are to have any chance of meeting the 1.5°C target in the Paris agreement, we need a just transition to 100% renewable energy for all. ANZ is a roadblock to this urgent climate action.
