Insuring PGE’s coal business? No thanks PZU, Lloyds and Talanx!

PGE, one of the biggest polluters in Europe, linked to more than 1,000 modelled premature deaths in 2016, is constantly undermining efforts to address climate change by continuing its coal business.As PGE expands old mines and digs new ones, insurance companies like Germany’s Talanx, Britain’s Lloyds, and Poland’s PZU support its dirty coal business, putting our health, the climate, and their reputations at greater and greater risk.

Today PGE’s annual general meeting is taking place. Let’s show those companies that finance and insure PGE that they have to act responsibly, and stop propping up PGE’s dirty business. Help us send them a message!
