Lights out for the Reef

Visiting the Great Barrier Reef has always been on my bucket list and something that I share with many Australians. Despite my irrational fear of sharks I wouldn’t give up a chance to scuba dive in one of the world’s most famous underwater paradises.

Victory for the Reef

Yesterday, after a four-month campaign by AYCC members, Lend Lease has publicly confirmed that they have withdrawn from the AP-X coal project - the biggest proposed coal port in Great Barrier Reef waters!

Campaigns

Save the Reef

There are currently proposals on the table to build a staggering nine new coal ports in the heart of the Great Barrier Reef. Combined, these projects would mean game over for the climate and destroy huge sections of the reef - we have the opportunity to change the game.

Lend Lease

Lend Lease, one of Australia’s biggest construction companies, has always been a leader on climate change and sustainability - which is why we were shocked to learn that its senior management is considering financing the most damaging coal port planned on the Great Barrier Reef coast.

Repower Port Augusta

Port Augusta is a town at a crossroads. With two coal-fired power stations closing, there is the opportunity to decide what they are replaced with: Australia's first solar thermal plants or a combined cycle gas plant.

Safe Climate Roadmap

The Safe Climate Roadmap is a vision of the ambitious action we need to secure a safe climate future: reduce our pollution at least 40% by 2020; transition to 100% renewable energy within 10 years; and move beyond coal and gas.
