Australia Beyond Coal is a movement of everyday people, supported by experts, scientists, businesses and environment organisations — advocating for the closure of every coal-fired power station in Australia, replacing them with 100% renewable energy by 2030.
United by our commitment to see Australia take meaningful action on climate change, the organisation has come together to build a campaign to transform the Australian energy system over the next decade and see Australia harness the extraordinary economic opportunities of this country’s plentiful renewable energy resources to support thriving communities and forge a bright future powered by clean energy.
Beyond Coal aims to empower everyday people with information about the risks of coal-burning power stations to our climate, health and economy; to inspire people to join active campaigns happening right now all over Australia and; to advocate for a just transition to renewable energy.
Australia Beyond Coal was started as an alliance between a group of seven community organisations, who together represent more than one and a half million Australians concerned about the damaging impacts of coal power on our health, communities, and climate. Member organisations are funded by donations from thousands of everyday people around the nation, who want our country to take urgent action on climate change.
