Hi there, am I speaking with [staff name]? [listen]
Hi [staff name], my name is [your name]. I’m calling from [where you are from]. I’m calling because I have some questions about Ark’s involvement with Adani’s Charmichael coal project in Australia. Do you know about this coal mine? [listen]
I’m really concerned about this coal mine because [your reasons].
We know there are Lloyd’s insurers working with Adani. We have reason to believe that Ark could be one of the insurers involved, as it hasn’t joined the growing list of other Lloyd’s insurers that have ruled out insuring Adani’s coal project.
I’m calling you, because as an Ark employee, your voice is powerful. We are calling on Ark to be a climate champion and rule out insuring this coal project. Is this something you would like to see Ark do? [listen]
We’re looking for a written statement along the lines of: “Ark will not provide insurance for Adani’s Carmichael coal mine, rail, or port.” Even if Ark is currently insuring Adani, we will take this as a commitment to not re-extend the insurance.
Would you be willing to raise this internally? [listen]
Thanks so much for taking the time to talk with me today. I really appreciate it.
Today [8th October 2021], protesters from Coal Action Network set up a climate justice memorial at Lloyd’s of London’s Head Quarters.

New report from Coal Action Network. Coal in Steel provides background information to campaigns against proposed new coking coal mines and considering how coal needs to be phased out of steel production.
From West Cumbria to London, opposition to the controversial proposal for an underground coking
coal mine, sited near Whitehaven, is widespread and growing. On 7th September, the day the
public inquiry investigating the proposal by West Cumbria Mining Ltd started, members of the public gather in two locations to demand a greener future, in which a new coal mine has no place.
Coal Action Network has commissioned research revealing massive debts of over £29million, Cayman Islands tax havens, corporate structures that undermine responsibility, and taxes that may not get paid.
Coal Action Network has joined eight other action groups in pledging to take direct action against the proposed Cumbrian coking coal mine, should the government reject all of the evidence at the public inquiry and approve the mine.
Between 2008 and 2012, communities fought against the threat of an opencast coal mine on the edge of their picturesque rural Northumberland villages. Northumberland Local Planning Authority sided with…
Today (10th July 2021) we gather to say goodbye to our friend Dongria Khond, also known as Penny Eastwood. Her life was remarkable in the amount of people she touched, the things she did and the places she protected.
With Adani looking to renew its insurance soon, we need to make sure the last few insurers rule out insuring this mega mine. Join a Power Hour of action to help ramp up the pressure.
