Australian blues musician Ash Grunwald was disappointed when he found out that ANZ was investing millions of dollars in coal. Here is Ash’s full statement:
“I’ve been against the needless use of fossil fuels ever since I found out that renewable energy is just as efficient and is up and running in so many places. Why would we keep polluting our planet when we’ve got the alternatives here and now?
So I was mega disappointed when I found out that ANZ was using my savings to fund coal. There’s no point protesting against something that your money is supporting. In this world, you’ve gotta vote with your feet. That’s what I’m going to do. If ANZ don’t commit to stop funding fossil fuels, I’ll take my business somewhere else.”
