Asian Development Bank:


We can’t afford more gas, coal, and oil. Tell ADB leadership to invest in solutions, not more fossil fuels.

Why Does the ADB Need to Take Action?

The ADB is currently revising its energy policy, which will guide its investment decisions for the next decade. 

What the Bank decides now will set the course for whether we cut global carbon emissions by 2030 and stop harming communities with dirty fossil fuel projects, or fail to protect our planet and communities. 

This year’s policy review – the first in over a decade – is the bank’s chance to set a new direction.

Fossil Fuels Undermine the ADB’s Mission

“The Asian Development Bank (ADB) is committed to achieving a prosperous, inclusive, resilient, and sustainable Asia and the Pacific, while sustaining its efforts to eradicate extreme poverty. It assists its members and partners by providing loans, technical assistance, grants, and equity investments to promote social and economic development.”​

– The Asian Development Bank

The ADB’s support for gas, oil, and coal undermines its own mission. The ADB’s financing is fueling the climate emergency and harming communities and ecosystems.

If the Bank continues to support fossil fuels, it will undermine global climate action and put local communities’ health and livelihoods at risk.
