Martha Jaegers sent a message to Jeffrey Immelt that said:
To CEO Larry Culp, Jr.
GEâs decision to end involvement in new coal plants worldwide is the right decision, and I applaud the board for making the right call for our health and our future.
GE did not provide additional details about what happens to the slate of more than a dozen projects currently under development in which GE is involved, such as:
* The coal plant in Lamu, Kenya, to be located next to a UNESCO World Heritage site
* The Tuzla 7 project in Bosnia and Herzegovina which does not comply with EUâs pollution control and competition standards, and which is currently subject to an infringement procedure
* The Vung Ang 2 coal plant in Vietnam for which several international banks have already refused financing.
GE is making the right call to move away from coal â and I encourage you to make good on that commitment by re-evaluating all of the projects that are not yet in operation, and ending GEâs involvement in all of these projects as soon as possible. I also call on you to please provide information about these decisions to the public, especially affected communities around the world.
Thank you sincerely,
Martha M. Jaegers
