Join the campaign to stop Adani’s destructive Carmichael coal mine.
Adani’s Carmichael coal project is trashing First Nations land rights, draining critical water resources, risking our already distressed Great Barrier Reef and fueling runaway global warming that threatens all our lives and livelihoods. It must be stopped and the coal left in the ground.
To continue to operate the Carmichael mine, rail line and port, Adani Group will need ongoing insurance and financing. With your help, we can make sure that the companies that provide these services understand that supporting Adani would be a reputation-destroying move. With enough pressure, we can convince Adani to walk away from its disastrous Carmichael coal project for good.
ABOUT THE CARMICHAEL COAL PROJECT
Adani Group’s Carmichael thermal coal project in Queensland includes what could become Australia’s biggest coal mine, a connecting rail line, and the North Queensland Export Terminal (NQXT, formerly Adani Abbot Point Terminal) a port in the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area.
Carmichael will help open up the untapped Galilee Basin to more climate-wrecking mega-mines. Unless it is stopped it could set off a carbon bomb of global significance, fueling the climate crisis right when the need to phase out fossil fuels has never been more urgent.
The Traditional Owners of the land where Adani’s Carmichael mine is being developed, the Wangan and Jagalingou, have not given their Free, Prior and Informed Consent to the project, and continue to resist it.

THE WINS SO FAR
Adani’s Carmichael coal project is hugely controversial. Thanks to a relentless community campaign, Carmichael has already:
- Decreased to one sixth of its originally proposed size (at least in its initial phase).
- Been delayed by around 8 years.
- Failed to secure any direct external finance, with over 100 major companies, publicly ruling out any direct association with the project.
However, Adani Group remains committed to Carmichael and the conglomerate still has support from some laggard banks, insurers and investors.
We need your help to keep up the pressure on Adani. Take action now by sending an email to the creditors and bankers of NQXT to demand they cut ties with Adani’s Australian coal port, or scroll down to learn more about our work and how you can get involved.
