M Smith, Canberra's Pledge to ANZ, Perpetual and Minister Turnbull about the pulp mill: We HAD accounts with ANZ, including our mortgage, but have just cancelled our accounts and changed our mortgage over to another institution BECAUSE of their ugly link to Gunns. I know our paltry finances are nothing compared to a lucrative client like Gunns, but I want ANZ to know our reasons for changing banks. Hopefully thousands of other ANZ customers will do the same to voice their disappointment.
Anonymous's Pledge to ANZ, Perpetual and Minister Turnbull about the pulp mill: If the ANZ supports the pulp mill I will take our business loans, home loan and all our other business banking elsewhere. How can they be so unehtical and blind. They are hypocrites - proudly promoting the ANZ merchant forests they have planted to offset carbon emmissions by there merchant facilites. Instead of popularist advertising - they should not support the pulp mill - thats way better than planting trees that may or may not grow and will take years to offset any large amount of carbon. The ANZ, Perpetual and Labor government are fools if they let this pulp mill proceed. I will not support any of them.
fedup5's Pledge to ANZ, Perpetual and Minister Turnbull about the pulp mill: We go to Bali to address climate change and invest in deforestation at home?? Somewhat schizophrenic isn't it.

kneel's Pledge to ANZ, Perpetual and Minister Turnbull about the pulp mill: ask the forests if they want a pulp mill.... for surely they will be around long after we have gone
Dave17's Pledge to ANZ, Perpetual and Minister Turnbull about the pulp mill: Why dont the greens focus on bigger issues such as what BHP and RIO Tinto are doing to our native landscape in WA. Interestingly we hear nothing about the masses of greenhouse gases being produced by those two corporate bohemaths, instead focussing on projects that will meet even the most stringent global standards. Get the priorities right
grace's Pledge to ANZ, Perpetual and Minister Turnbull about the pulp mill: It is my sincere hope the ANZ Bank honours their commitment to the EQUATOR PRINCIPLES which, I believe, is the benchmark for assessing and managing social and environmental risk in project financing.
Most people now know Gunns Integrated Impact Statement was fundamentally flawed, the public were not given the opportunity to comment on the Supplementary Information, the process was “shonky” (enabling legislation being hastily drawn up with Gunns lawyers present) and the Consultant, SWECO PIC was not who it should have been, the Resource Planning & Development Commission.
What potential financiers of the project may NOT know is both the West Tamar Council and the Launceston City Council have recently withdrawn support for this project citing serious concerns re air pollution, odour, transport, health, water, compliance etc. none of which have been adequately assessed.
It is also worth noting that whilst the Chief Scientist approved the project with 48 conditions to be met, at the same time over 120 scientific experts sent a signed statement to Malcolm Turnbull (Environment Minister at the time) urging him not to approve the mill until more research was done (ref. "The Mercury" 18 Sept. 2007).
No impact studies on forests, endangered species & wildlife, river & coastline, even local businesses (i.e. tourism, wineries, fishing, agriculture etc.) have been carried out. No risk assessment has been done.
The Australian public spoke loud and clear in the November Federal Election.... they want clean, green and environmentally sound industries. This mill will escalate the appalling clearfelling, burning, poisoning and polluting practices of this company.
In light of the above as well as concerns raised by others, I urge ANZ and any other institutions considering financing this project to adhere strictly to the EQUATOR PRINCIPLES and refuse finance for this potentially environmentally destructive pulp mill.
Michelle2's Pledge to ANZ, Perpetual and Minister Turnbull about the pulp mill: I will not support a financial institution that funds this Pulp Mill. I have been banking with ANZ for nearly 20 yrs (and been a happy customer) & have will close all of my accounts if they fund this mill. I feel very strongly about this issue. We need to protect beautiful Tasmania.
wombat8's Pledge to ANZ, Perpetual and Minister Turnbull about the pulp mill: SHAME ON YOU ANZ !!!
steph2's Pledge to ANZ, Perpetual and Minister Turnbull about the pulp mill: Please leave all wilderness areas as nature intended
Anonymous's Pledge to ANZ, Perpetual and Minister Turnbull about the pulp mill: Unfortunately, I am locked in to ANZ with a hefty mortgage. If it was at all possible I would move my minimal funds and mortgage to Westpac.
A concerned citizen's Pledge to ANZ, Perpetual and Minister Turnbull about the pulp mill: Climate change is a real danger to our collective future and we must do all that we can to conserve the Tasmanian forests, not just so our future generations can admire their beauty, but so our future generations can breath!
Anonymous's Pledge to ANZ, Perpetual and Minister Turnbull about the pulp mill: It makes no sense to log these forests. Jobs are easily obtainable in more sustainable forms, and the pulp mill will damage the environment - which will cost the economy.
William4's Pledge to ANZ, Perpetual and Minister Turnbull about the pulp mill: Australia is a wealthy country we do not need to destroy any more of our environment.If ANZ finance this I will close my ANZ account.
Tiff1's Pledge to ANZ, Perpetual and Minister Turnbull about the pulp mill: This is so unacceptable to me that I have researched and written 2 long letters to the liberal and labour party leaders and Environment Ministers to express my deep concern. Apart from anything else it flies in the face of preventing CLimate Change. It also threatens rich, rare and precious biological heritage, and the future potential of sustainable industries. It sets a dangerous precedent, using old and dirty technology. This is not the kind of Tasmania or Australia that we want. We want a truly green and ecologically sustainable future.
