Climate

We want to live our lives to the full, while keeping our planet healthy and beautiful so our children can do the same. Revolutionising the way we use and produce energy is not only necessary; it is the safest and easiest way to protect our way of life. It’s time we chose a clean energy future.

Stop climate change

Stop reckless coal developments in the Great Barrier Reef

Coal exported from Australia, when burnt, creates more greenhouse gas emissions than every other source of emissions in Australia combined. Right now, Australian mining companies are planning to double coal exports. This drives climate change even harder at a time when Australians are suffering its effects: extreme weather, bush fires, flooding and more.

Greenpeace is working to halt the reckless expansion of coal exports by stopping new export terminals proposed for the Great Barrier Reef coast. Read more

Greenpeace is speaking out in support of clean energy initiatives around the world by promoting a future that does not rely on fossil fuels for energy.  Read more
