AGL is still making plans to build a polluting and unnecessary gas import terminal in beautiful Westernport Bay, potentially destroying precious wetlands and wildlife in the process.
It’s a classic case of profit over people and planet.
Working with groups like Environment Victoria and Phillip Island Conservation Council (PICS), we’ve managed to delay their project twice, but AGL still refuses to dump their dirty gas plan.
The next year will be key in the fight for Westernport Bay. We need to ramp up pressure and hold AGL accountable for the damage their plans will cause to this precious ecosystem.
As a customer or potential customer, AGL cares about what you say. It’s time to use your voice and hit them where it hurts!
Take Action NOW
Send a message to AGL to register your concern as a customer or potential customer. If they want your business, they have to dump their dirty gas project.
Last week we took the fight to the AGL board at their AGM in Sydney.
On behalf of nine groups including Save Westernport, PICS, Westernport and Peninsula Protection Society (WPPC), and Environment Victoria, an open letter was delivered to AGL board members and shareholders.
The joint letter stated that community opposition to this project continues to grow, and will not go away until AGL bin their dirty gas plan.
But now we need to keep the pressure up, and as a customer or potential customer, you can influence what AGL does.
We need to seize this moment and let them know that it’s not just shareholders and the local community around Westernport Bay who want AGL to do better on climate – customers and potential customers across Victoria do too.
You can help protect our climate and our precious marine sanctuary by permanently blacklisting AGL if they go ahead with this dirty plan.
Take Action NOW
AGL is already feeling the pressure with more than 30 percent of shareholders calling for AGL to close all its coal-burning power stations by 2030 and set climate targets consistent with limiting global warming to two degrees.
We are putting the AGL corporation on notice: if they want your business, they have to dump their dirty gas project.
