NAB is banking climate failure – Melbourne NAB HQ Report Drop

The ‘Banking Climate Failure’ report is coming!

At the end of May, the highly anticipated Market Forces report is expected to find that NAB is still the bank of choice for coal companies, including Whitehaven Coal. In fact, NAB has given more money to Whitehaven Coal than any other big bank, committing $268 million to the climate wrecking coal company in just the last few years.

Yet NAB has still not ruled out refinancing and giving more money to Whitehaven! And Whitehaven’s shocking announcement last month- that they are fast tracking the development of the Vickery mine-set to come online soon-puts further pressure on NAB just weeks before Whitehaven Coal’s funding deadline.

NAB has clearly still not learnt its lesson and needs a final reminder before Whitehaven’s ‘middle of the year’ deadline for its $110 million loan renewal.

Join Jamie, Linda and members of Melbourne Move Beyond Coal for a report drop at NAB HQ, 395 Bourke Street Melbourne, on May 31, 2023 at 4:30pm – 5:30pmhighlighting NAB’s failure to deliver on its own climate policies and to stop lending to climate wrecking coal companies, including Whitehaven Coal.
