Lockton is the latest company helping Adani find insurance for their risky and destructive Carmichael coal project. The #StopAdani movement has successfully pushed 44 insurance companies to rule out Adani’s climate-wrecking coal mine. Leaving Adani scraping the absolute bottom of the barrel to find insurance for the world’s most toxic coal project. Now, it looks like US-based insurance broker Lockton could be helping Adani find the insurance they so desperately need to ramp up their dirty coal mine.
Can you call Lockton Australia's CEO right now and tell them why Lockton must join the 44 major insurance companies who’ve said No to Adani’s climate-wrecking coal project?
- I’m disappointed to hear that your company could be helping Adani find insurance for its Carmichael thermal coal project
- 112 companies have ruled out working on Adani’s mine, including 44 of Lockton’s peers in the global insurance industry. These companies have said No to Adani’s coal mine because of the reputational risks, and because of the mine’s devastating impacts on the world’s climate, on Australia’s precious natural environment and on the rights of Wangan and Jagalingou Traditional Owners.
- We are in the middle of a climate crisis. In the last couple of years Australia has been absolutely devastated by unprecedented fires and multiple catastrophic floods. Coal is the biggest driver of this climate chaos. How can Lockton help Adani develop Australia’s biggest coal mine in full knowledge that this will make these climate impacts worse?
Wangan and Jagallingou Traditional Owners have never consented to Adani’s mine on their ancestral lands, and have been conducting an ongoing cultural ceremony on Adani’s mining lease for almost a year in defiance of Adani’s destruction. By working for Adani, Lockton is complicit in Adani’s violation of Aboriginal land rights.
- Lockton faces massive reputational risks if it works with Adani. I’m calling to ask that you immediately and publicly rule out any work for Adani’s Carmichael coal project.
