Tell GHD, Build our Future not Adani's Dirty Coal Mine!

International engineering company GHD want to help Adani build their coal mine.

GHD proudly and publicly support "environmentally and socially responsible operations" and we know the Adani coal mine is anything but that.

It's time we show GHD executives that working with Adani is a bad idea, not just for our planet but for GHD's reputation too.

Adani is a company who have;

  • spilt coal pollution into the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area.1
  • started drilling, illegally...and then lied to the Queensland Government about it.2
  • a track record of workers' rights abuses, tax evasion, and environmental destruction.3,4
  • refused to pay their contractor, AECOM, for work they did on the company's rail link plan5

On top of this, scientists say we only have 12 years to replace polluting coal with clean renewable energy and storage.6

Can you sign the petition telling GHD that Adani is risky business?

GHD are an Australian-based multinational company. They've had extensive involvement in the Adani project since 2012, from preparing Environmental Impact Statements for the mine and rail projects, to quoting the 10,000 job estimate.

While over 50 major companies have refused to work with Adani1, GHD is doing the engineering design for the Carmichael mine - a project that will threaten water supplies, trash Traditional Owners' land rights and fuel worse heatwaves, bushfires, droughts and storms.

The Adani coal mine will be catastrophic for our environment.

Please build our future - not Adani's dirty coal mine!
