Pledge to stop Origin fracking outback Australia

Origin Energy has positioned itself as a key driver of plans to open massive new oil and gas basins in three magical regions across outback Australia*.

Fracking is a disaster for the landscape, communities and waterways. Plus it unleashes massive emissions of methane, a greenhouse gas, and fuels global warming.

Sign the pledge here and help stop Origin from fracking Australia.
