Power for Change
Australia should be the world leader in clean and affordable energy powered by the sun and wind. But for years AGL, Origin and EnergyAustralia have raked in mega profits by burning the fossil fuels that drive climate change, spewing out toxins that cause serious health problems and meddling with our politics to win countless favours. It’s time to get these Big Polluters out of our homes, communities and politics – WATCH THIS SPACE to join the Power For Change movement to help Australia break free from dirty energy.

Main Issue of the Campaign:

Campaign Ran From: 2017 to 2017

Campaign Outcome:

Outcome Evidence: AGL has announced the closure of Liddel power station along with an innovation plan which mentions a Just Transition. However, other AGL fossil fuel plants are proposed to continue until 2048. Source: https://www.accr.org.au/news/investor-briefing-on-shareholder-resolutions-to-agl-energy-ltd-on-coal-closure-dates/ As stated on ACCR website https://www.accr.org.au/news/investor-briefing-on-shareholder-resolutions-to-agl-energy-ltd-on-coal-closure-dates/ (viewed 28/12/2021): 'In 2015, AGL announced that it would close its three coal-fired power stations at the end of their operating lives — Liddell by 2022-23[1], Bayswater by 2035 and Loy Yang A by 2048[2]....ACCR met with AGL executives and board members several times in the last year. While AGL’s latest scenario analysis implicitly acknowledges the inconsistency between the Paris Agreement’s objectives and the technical lives of AGL’s coal-fired power stations, the company has not signalled its intention to bring forward closure dates to align with the Paris Agreement, and has not disclosed a strategy for early closure.'
