Stop the dirty coal deal threatening the Great Barrier 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.

Stop the dirty coal deal threatening the Great Barrier Reef
India’s coal king wants to turn one of the world's most precious ecological treasures into a major shipping lane for a monstrous coal complex. He needs a $1 billion bank loan to do it, but if we act fast we can get the State Bank of India to turn down this dirty deal.

UNESCO declared the Great Barrier Reef “at risk” from the project, and other leading banks have said no way. The State Bank’s Chairwoman has staked her reputation on cracking down on “bad loans” -- and a massive global public campaign exposing the huge risks of this investment can force her to stall, scrutinise and stop this lethal billion dollar loan.

Let’s ensure the Reef remains home for whales and dolphins, not hulking coal ships. The entire project hangs in the balance and we’ve made huge strides towards blocking it. Add your name to oppose the loan -- when we reach one million signers we’ll take out ads mentioning Chairwoman Bhattacharya by name to put her reputation on the line before she decides.
