Fossil Free Australia

Go Fossil Free Australia Banner

Securing a safe climate means that 80% of current fossil fuel reserves must remain in the ground—yet most of our public institutions are invested in these reserves. We believe it’s time to change this.

It’s time to move our money out of fossil fuels and into the clean energy economy. Australia is one of the most carbon-intense economies in the world, yet we are rich in renewable energy resources. As members, beneficiaries, and customers of super funds, banks, educational and religious institutions, and governments, each of us can play a powerful role in divesting Australia’s economy from fossil fuels.

If it’s wrong to wreck the climate, then surely it’s wrong to profit from that wreckage.

Go Fossil Free Australia is a national campaign to move public institutions’ and individuals’ money out of fossil fuels and into clean energy. Led by 350.org Australia, we work in partnership with the Australian Student Environment Network to campaign for fossil fuel divestment from universities, the Australian Religious Response to Climate Change to encourage faith-based divestment, The Vital Few to encourage super funds to invest more in the low-carbon economy and Market Forces to pressure our “Big 4” banks to stop funding destructive fossil fuel projects.

Join the Fossil Free Australia community today to bring on the clean energy revolution!
