Angra dos Reis

BNP Paribas, is the major sponsor of the French Masters tennis tournament and provides more funding to the nuclear industry than any other bank in the world. Currently BNP Paribas has plans to fund a dangerously obsolete nuclear reactor in Brazil – the Angra 3 reactor. Learn more about our campaign to stop nuclear investments.

Angra dos Reis, 150 km from Rio de Janeiro, is one of Brazil’s most beautiful areas and a top tourist destination. There has been widespread national criticism regarding the location of the nuclear power station due to the area’s outstanding natural beauty and safety fears.

If BNP Paribas’ financing goes ahead, a third reactor – Angra 3 – will be built using dangerously obsolete technology burdening Brazil with a reactor that would not be permitted in the countries that are financing it. It would be misusing its customers’ money and fail to deliver the safe, affordable, clean energy Brazil needs in a climate changing world.

If BNP Paribas goes ahead with financing the Angra 3 reactor - it will burden the Brazilian people and environment with a dangerously obsolete reactor. Tell BNP Paribas not to fund the dangerous, out-of-date Angra 3 nuclear reactor:
