Secret plans for ANZ to cut thermal coal mining exposure by 75% by March 2024 have been leaked by internal sources today. 350 Aotearoa campaigner, Claudia Palmer comments on how much further action is needed from the bank.
Last weekend we brought together our volunteers from across Aotearoa to celebrate over 10 years of organising as 350 Aotearoa. It was great to regroup, build connections, and set ourselves up for the big haul that’s ahead. We wanted to take a moment to look back at everything that we have achieved together and where we’re headed next.
Steph is a volunteer blogger for 350 Aotearoa. She is 18 and about to finish high school. "As I get ready to step out into the real world, I want to make sure I'm doing everything I can to keep our planet happy and healthy. 350 Aotearoa is working towards that same goal and I am thrilled to be able to contribute to their important work."
350 Aotearoa support changing the default KiwiSaver settings to require mandatory exclusions of certain industries, in particular the exclusion of the fossil fuel industry. We urge the government to implement a robust criteria for ‘responsible investment’, which utilises negative-screening through sector exclusion policies.
