stop funding coal power
Right now, Japan is considering funding a massive fleet of coal-fired power stations at home and abroad. This is a catastrophe for the planet — worsening deadly air pollution and driving climate change to catastrophic levels.
Join this global campaign to stop Japan funding more coal-fired power stations. We’ll deliver our voices to government and corporate leaders in Japan to ensure we are heard.
Money and political support for coal projects is already drying up as many countries, corporations and communities are rapidly shifting to renewable energy. But while many are moving in the right direction, some including Japan are not yet on board. We need Japan to join this change.
Together we can push the Japanese government leaders, banks, and corporations to withdraw their support for dirty coal technology. If we can show Japanese leadership that enough people around the world know and care about its role on the coal industry, we can push them to act.
