Lending to coal ports

Australia’s largest contribution to global warming come from our role as the world’s biggest coal exporter. We also have the dubious honour of hosting the world’s largest coal port at Newcastle, while other major coal export terminals – including Abbot Point, Gladstone, Hay Point, and Port Kembla – dot our eastern coastline.

A number of these projects are included in out list of ten dodgy deals that are hurting the big banks – check it out here.

Due to the hundreds of millions of tonnes of dirty coal we ship off to be burned overseas each year, Australia is highly culpable for the growing climate emergency, and so are the banks that finance these projects.
