The Trans Mountain tar sands pipeline is currently being pushed ahead in violation of Indigenous rights and it represents a global climate catastrophe.
But making it impossible for the pipeline to find insurance is a critical way to stop the project in its tracks.
We know our insurance campaign is working because Trans Mountain admitted publicly that pressure from our movement is the reason why its insurance options are dwindling.
Fifteen insurers have now dropped Trans Mountain, but Chubb actually increased its coverage for Trans Mountain in 2020. Fortunately, we know Chubb is sensitive about its reputation on climate. With an increase in public pressure, Chubb could be convinced to drop the pipeline.
Your letter to insurance company CEOs will be more effective if you personalize it! The most impactful letters include details about why you care personally about stopping the Trans Mountain pipeline. If you’re a policyholder or shareholder, mention that too!
