It's been less than a year since Australia’s divestment movement kicked off but already over two thirds of Australians agree they’d choose a bank or super fund that doesn’t invest in fossil fuels over one that does.
Lonergan Research asked Australians what they thought of fossil fuel investments. Here’s how they responded…
77% of Australians said they were concerned about their bank or super fund financing coal and gas projects in or near the Great Barrier Reef and 72% were concerned about their bank or super fund financing coal and gas anywhere in Australia.
67% of Australians agreed they’d choose a bank or superfund that doesn't invest in fossil fuels over one that does and 78% agreed that super-funds should offer fossil free products. This is a marked increase in the 25% of Australians who said they’d switch funds as part of The Australia Institute and Market Forces survey last year.
76% of Australians agree the risks associated with fossil fuel investments are growing and 75% agree that Australia has too many eggs in the mining basket.
