Itochu Action May 2024

Itochu are a commodities trading company based in Japan, with offices all around the world. They are reported to be in advanced discussions to acquire a  stake in Whitehaven Coal's Blackwater metallurgical coal mine.

It is likely that Whitehaven will want to finalise the sales of Blackwater stakes by the end of the financial year (June 24). We have a small window of opportunity to hopefully warn these potential joint venture partners not to enter a business relationship with Whitehaven Coal. 

We are organising a public protest outside the Itochu office in Sydney to get photos and videos, and amplifying them on social media so that they may take a more cautious approach to going into business with a company with such a terrible environmental and legal track record.

Let's make it clear to Itochu that any business deals that expands the coal industry during the climate crisis is #RiskyBusiness and will face public opposition.
