AGL’s transformation from Australia’s biggest climate polluter to one of Australia’s biggest climate solutions is now underway and has been one of the most dramatic in Australian corporate history. 

 As the owners and operators of three of the largest coal-burning power stations in the country, AGL was acting as a dam wall to a flood of renewable energy into Australia. 

Together Greenpeace and its supporters waged a strategic campaign against AGL and its leadership team; challenging the company’s false clean and green image, turning away its customers, threatening its funding sources, and convincing its shareholders to act. This paved the way for Mike Cannon-Brookes to buy his 11% share of the company and further disrupt AGL’s plans to go slow on renewable energy.

“An incredible story of how people can force positive change.”

This documentary is about how Greenpeace, together with a diverse group of people and organisations, took on Australia’s biggest climate polluter – and won.

The documentary by Greenpeace Australia Pacific, takes you behind the scenes, to witness the strategic multi-pronged tactics unleashed against AGL and its leadership team; challenging the company’s false clean and green image, turning away its customers, threatening its funding sources, and convincing its shareholders to take action.

This film gives you a rare insight into what led to the extraordinary victory that shifted Australia’s biggest climate polluter into a renewable energy powerhouse, in the most dramatic transformation in Australian corporate history.
