Don't let two friends wreck the Reef

To State Bank of India Chairperson, Arundhati Bhattacharya, and the SBI Board:

As citizens across the world concerned about climate change and the Great Barrier Reef, we call on you to turn down finance for Adani's controversial Carmichael mine and related infrastructure. A large number of private banks have walked away from this destructive and costly project. In line with your commitment to crack down on bad loans, we urge you to reject this proposal and instead invest in clean power supplies.

Don't let two friends wreck the Reef
Indian mining giant Adani is strugglingto get cash for a massive coal project that threatens an iconic natural treasure -- the Great Barrier Reef. Citizens around the world have already stopped leading banks from funding this dirty deal. But now, suddenly, the Indian state bank is throwing Adani a $1 billion lifeline.

Oh,and the newly elected Indian PM is close friends with Mr. Adani himself!


It’s outrageous
-- the political and corporate influence of two friends shouldn’t outweigh the will of the global community. But we still have time to turn it around. Right now, the bank’s Board of Directors is reviewing the loan agreement and they can decide to call it off. India’s political opposition is in anuproar, and if we lend our voices we can drive a wedge between PM Modi and the bank and stop the deal.
