New coalmines will leave more people in poverty, Oxfam has said in a new report, calling on Australia to commit to no new coalmines and to end public subsidies for coalmining.

Mounting debt across the Adani Group suggests that the Indian conglomerate’s Carmichael mine proposal for northeast Australia has become an increasingly precarious house of cards, according to new report by the Institute for Energy Economics and Financial Analysis (IEEFA).

Judgement of the Supreme Court of India in the matter of Prayas (Energy Group) Vs Central Electricity Regulatory Commission & Others dated 11/04/2017 regarding Adani Enterprises Consortium seeking a hike in power tariffs due to “unprecedented and unforeseen” escalation in the price of coal imported from Indonesia.

CASE HISTORY & TIMELINE

The following report is a summary of mining giant Adani’s track record, based on research into hundreds of court documents by Environmental Justice Australia and Earthjustice and other publicly available evidence. In 2011, a ship carrying Adani coal sank off the coast of Mumbai, devastating beaches, tourism and marine life.

Adani’s Carmichael mine has been “covertly funded” by the World Bank through a private arm that is supposed to back “sustainable development”, according to a US-based human rights organisation.

The Adani Mining Pty Ltd is confident of commencing construction of the Carmichael mine by mid-2017, which will be Australia's largest coal mine, despite growing concerns and protests from environmental and indigenous groups that it will jeopardise the Great Barrier Reef and Aboriginal heritage. There were protests in Melbourne and Townsville, where Adani announced that he will set up the headquarters of the project.
