AGL proudly advertises itself to the Australian public as green and environmentally responsible. But a deeper dive into the company reveals the truth couldn’t be more different to its carefully crafted public image.
AGL is Australia’s number one climate polluter, and it’s not even close. 83% of their electricity comes from burning dirty coal, meaning they emit more than double the next biggest polluter.
Coal is the biggest driver of the climate crisis. Scientists warn we MUST stop burning coal by 2030 to avoid the most catastrophic impacts of climate change, but AGL is still insisting on burning coal until 2048. Thats 18 years too late.
Australia can’t move fast enough to avoid the devastating effects of climate change unless AGL gets out of coal. Business as usual is simply not an option if we want a safe, clean future for our environment and communities.
Join us in demanding that AGL clean up its act.
