Aperçu de la plainte

Date de soumission 30 January 2020
Statut actuel Pending
Thème ANZ's climate impacts breach Enviro, Discl., Cons. Prot.
Résumé de la plainte On 30 January 2020, Australian bushfire victims and Friends of the Earth Australia filed a specific instance against Australia New Zealand Bank (ANZ) at the Australian NCP. The complaint alleges that ANZ, Australia’s largest financier of fossil fuel industries, has failed to meaningfully adhere to the Paris Agreement reduction targets across its lending portfolio, in breach of the Environmental and Consumer Protection chapters of the Guidelines. The complaint also alleges that the bank’s failure to disclose the full extent of its lending emissions represents a breach of the Disclosure chapter of the OECD Guidelines. This is the first OECD Guidelines complaint to be handled by the the Australian NCP's new Independent Examiner, following the NCP's 2019 organisational restructuring. It is the second complaint concerning a bank's climate impacts, following a 2017-2019 complaint brought to the Dutch NCP concerning ING's climate targets and indirect greenhouse gas emissions.
Développements/Résultat In November 2020 the Australian has accepted the complaint for further consideration and will offer its good offices in an effort to resolve the case.
