AGL is Australia's biggest climate polluter

AGL spends millions spruiking its environmental credentials. On closer inspection, it doesn't stack up.

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 2045. Thats 15 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.

Let AGL know you’re not falling for their dodgy demerger.

Instead of taking real action on climate change, AGL is trying to hide their highly polluting coal burning power stations behind a new company Accel.

It’s a dodgy corporate accounting trick that means AGL could pretend to be ‘green’ while still burning coal until 2045, well beyond the deadline scientists agree we must stop burning coal to avoid the most devastating impacts of climate change.
