Companies that could make or break the Carmichael Coal Project

Insurance companies that have failed to rule out Adani

All major projects require underwriting insurance for public liability, plant and equipment damage and workers compensation, among other things. It is very likely that Adani still hasn’t secured the insurance deals it needs to build the mine and rail line, and without insurance it can't carry out the work.

So far 19 global insurers, including some major players in the resources and energy sectors, have publicly ruled out insuring any part of the Adani Carmichael project. The table below shows which insurers are yet to rule out insurance for Adani Carmichael and their response to the Stop Adani Alliance's letters sent in Dec 2018 and September 2019. Fill out the form to demand they commit to staying away from this climate-wrecking project.
