Help stop the next Fukushima disaster

Tell banks not to finance the Jaitapur nuclear power plant in India

Despite the nuclear disaster at Fukushima witnessed by the world, there are plans to build a major nuclear power station in a highly earthquake-prone region on the west coast of India. The Jaitapur nuclear plant can only be built with financing from banks like BNP Paribas and HSBC.

May 11 marks not only two months since the initial disaster at the Fukushima nuclear power plant - but is also the Annual General Meeting of BNP Paribas and HSBC's Strategy Day.

You can write to the boards of these international banks, asking them to help us stop this risky and unnecessary nuclear project in India.

BNP Paribas and HSBC bank

By removing nuclear power from their investment portfolios, BNP Paribas and HSBC bank can be leaders in the clean and safe energy future. We need them to only invest in renewable and energy efficiency technologies.

*Why are we comparing Fukushima to Jaitapur?

Not only is the Jaitapur Nuclear Power Plant planned to be built on the coastline and in a high-risk earthquake area, but it would use similar light water reactor technology that vitally depends on active cooling for weeks, even after the reactor is stopped. Its design has some of the apparent weaknesses that make it vulnerable to the same problems that caused the Fukushima accident. As proposed, the project would be a whole fleet of very large reactors, that could lead to multiple failures and radiation releases, as the world has been witnessing in Fukushima.
