Last week, Woodside was hit with a record-breaking investor push to act on climate change.
More than 50 per cent of investors backed motions for Woodside to commit to hard targets to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions and its significant indirect emissions (scope 3) from customers of its products all over the world. This resolution won despite a lack of endorsement from the Woodside board.
Our friends at the Conservation Council of Western Australia are asking people to email the Woodside Board and let them know that projects like the Burrup Hub are incompatible with a sustainable future for Western Australia.
We want the decision-makers at Woodside to realise that they continue to put their profits and workers in jeopardy when they invest in risky LNG projects rather than turning their attention to the opportunities that exist in the renewables industry.
The transformation is already underway. Woodside can be a part of WA’s transition to a renewable energy powerhouse that supports local communities. The CCWA is calling on Woodside to honour their commitment to net-zero emissions now, not later.
