Hold Siemens Accountable
Siemens has partnerships with many of our prized Institutions – donating equipment to further the goals of students. However, whilst they provide opportunities on one hand they take away our future with the other.
Siemens, with full knowledge of the impacts of climate change and of coal being the leading contributor, decided to deliver the critical and niche signalling work for Adani’s railway line, opening up the entire Galilee Basin to massive new thermal coal mines.
In the face of a massive global outcry, they promised the Australian people and the global community that they would hold Adani accountable to our environmental laws – that they would terminate their contract if Adani failed to meet their strict environmental obligations. However, after an extraordinary five breaches during the duration of Siemens work (and many more prior), Siemens are looking the other way and continue with ‘business as usual’ for Adani.
Our Institutions must engage Siemens and hold them to account – to keep their promise and terminate their Adani relationship. Should Siemens refuse, our Institutions must lead from the front and be brave – to prioritise the future and well being of its entire community, they must terminate their partnership with Siemens.
