Greenpeace Southeast Asia has launched a new website aimed at getting the Asian Development Bank (ADB) to change its ways. The ADB is a publicly-funded institution but is not held accountable to the public. It funds coal plants and other environmentally damaging projects - while the opportunities for renewable energy are abundant and under utilized.
From the Greenpeace Southeast Asia website:
There is a need for the Asian Development Bank to make a difference in saving Asia from the impacts of climate change, it must phase out coal and fossil fuels from its financing package and exclusively adopt a 100% renewables portfolio for the energy sector.
You can help - tell the ADB to join the energy revolution and support renewable power sources - not coal. Its donor countries are all over the world. It could be your money they're spending.
