It’s a disgrace. And it’s a recipe for climate disaster.

In the latest greenwashing attempt, the Australian Gas Network (AGN) has sponsored MasterChef Australia with “renewable gas”.

But it’s the oldest trick in the fossil fuel ‘greenwashing’ book: they pretend they’ve got a miraculous ‘green’ solution and that nothing needs to change. This is what AGN is doing with “renewable gas” – using smoke and mirrors to mislead millions of Australians into believing that the fossil gas network can be made ‘clean’.

It’s not surprising – the fossil fuel industry has been trying to rebrand as ‘green’ for a while. Because they know that Australians are more and more worried about climate change.

But their intent is clear: delay the transition to clean energy, keep burning fossil fuels, and keep raking in the profits.

Our climate, environment and future generations can’t afford for this to happen.

To protect our climate, we are fighting back against this misleading fossil fuel trickery.

And this year, we have a golden opportunity to end this fight once and for all:

In just a few months, our government will decide the energy path Victoria takes: whether Victoria commits to phasing out gas – making it easier and more affordable for everyone to electrify their homes – or if we are locked in for decades more.

The gas industry are fighting tooth and nail top protect their businesses. But what’s more important? Their profits, or our future?

To ensure the government makes the right decision for our climate and families, your donation today will help:

  • Produce expert research to show how we can electrify all 2 million Victorian gas-connected homes AND save Victorians money – essential in a cost-of-living crisis.
  • Mobilise thousands of Victorians across the state to show decision-makers in government AND the private sector that Victorians are ready to embrace an all-electric future.
  • Fight back against the cashed-up gas industry’s misinformation and greenwashing, by exposing their greenwashing through social media, newspaper ads, petitions, community events, and more.

Environment Victoria is a fiercely independent and non-partisan charity. We are here to hold governments and companies to account. And we can only do it because we are 100% funded by caring people like you.

Thank you for your generous support.
