Board Chair Philip Chronican

NAB Board Chair, Philip Chronican, faces a critical decision on fossil fuel lending. The International Energy Agency recently issued an authoritative call to end funding for new fossil fuel projects in order to save hope of limiting global warming to 1.5°C, Mr Chronican must choose whether to align NAB’s forthcoming Oil and Gas Policy with this advice.

Mr Chronican claims to share the concerns of Australian farmers impacted by climate change. Will this translate to leadership on climate action?
