Around 50-55 NAB bank branches across Australia (including our Crown St Mall branch) will be the focus of protests in the first full week of November this year. The protests are against NAB's continued funding of Whitehaven Coal – a company that’s expanding its thermal coal production even now.
NAB claim green credentials for having signed onto the Paris Climate Agreement to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by “aligning our lending portfolio to net zero emissions by 2050”. But continuing to fund Whitehaven’s plans to massively increase its emissions is not compatible with net zero!
Please join us to show NAB, and the other Australian banks, that Australians have had enough of their greenwash.
