Google Review Swarm - Stop Adani

Purpose of the action:

This action has two purposes. Firstly, it's about reaching people we wouldn't normally, informing them about the role insurers are playing in the climate-destroying Adani coal mine. Secondly, it's about delivering a blow to the public image of these companies by bringing their star ratings crashing down.

How to add a Google review:

In order to review somewhere on Google, you will need a Google account. It’s free and easy; Google has a support page on how to do so here, but get in touch if you’d like some extra help. 

  • Make sure you’re signed into your Google account before you leave your review.
  • Following one of the links on our location list at the bottom of this page will take you directly to one of the offices we’re targeting. There will be a panel on the left hand side that tells you information about the building, such as its opening hours, contact info, and photos. If you scroll down this, you will find the review summary.

  • From here, you simply click ‘Write a review’ and get going!
  • You can add a star rating to the location, as well as a text review. If you want, you can also add an image to your review to help it stand out
  • Tell each of these companies how you feel about them continuing to insure the climate-destroying Adani coal project. Members of the public can see this, so this is a great opportunity to spread the word, educate, and inform other people.  
  • Keep it personal - what are your thoughts and opinions, why do you think these companies should rule out underwriting the Adani coal mine. 
  • Remember, you can only review each location on Google once!
How to add a Google review:

Once you’ve finished your Google reviews, amplify them by sharing them - with friends, family, us, or on social media. 

  • You can share your own review, and like and share other people’s reviews using these buttons at the bottom of reviews. The more people who like and share these reviews, the more people will see them.

Targets:

Our main target for this action is the Lloyd's of London in London. It currently has a a 4.6 star rating, and 553 review - bringing this rating down isn't going to be easy. If you're going to only review one place - make it this one. If we all work together, we'll be able to see that rating start to get lower and lower.

As you can only add one review per location on Google, we've made a short list of other targets. Done with these and want to keep going? Find your own targets by going on different websites insurers who haven't ruled out underwriting Adani. Here, they'll list their offices in other cities.
