Letter to trade minister

9 December 2022

Diplomats for Climate Action Now, along with Jubilee Australia, 350.org, the Australian Conservation Foundation and Climate Action Network Australia, wrote to Senator The Hon Don Farrell, Minister for Trade and Tourism, urging him to sign the Glasgow Statement on International Public Support for the Clean Energy Transition.

The Glasgow Statement commits signatories to stop international financing for fossil fuel projects and to focus on helping partners to transition to clean energy. It has been signed by international banks as well as many of our developed country partners, including Canada and New Zealand and several European countries. We wrote the letter in response to media reports that Australia might be considering financing a Papua New Guinea government stake in an liquefied natural gas project.
