Dob In a Breach

Adani has a history of disregard for our environmental law and putting its own agenda before that of Queensland’s precious water, habitat, endangered animals and our Great Barrier Reef.

Regardless of what Australians think of the Carmichael coal mine project, we know they care about our environment and a corporations’ responsibility to conduct its work within the boundaries of its environmental assessments.

Adani and their contractors have a responsibility they must be held accountable to.
