Real Forest Protection Now

Though ANZ is Australia’s third largest bank, it is the country’s leading financier of environmentally destructive projects. One of ANZ’s most controversial clients, Gunns Limited, is rapidly destroying Tasmania’s forests. ANZ recently developed a draft forests policy that was supposed to apply ethical criteria to its investments. Unfortunately, the policy doesn’t reflect our discussions with the bank and would allow the bank to continue funding destructive projects, including Gunns’ pulp mill in Tasmania and illegal logging in Indonesia.

Tell ANZ’s Sustainability Director Gavin Murray that his company should develop a real forests policy and commit to not funding the Gunns pulp mill project!

Then, head on over to The Wilderness Society of Australia’s web site for updates and a list of additional actions you can take.
