In May 2012, we asked CREDO members to urge Goldman Sachs to stop financing coal export projects in Washington—and Goldman Sachs listened. Goldman Sachs recently sold its stake in Carrix, parent company of Pacific International Terminals and SSA Marine, which are behind the immense Gateway Pacific coal export terminal proposed near Bellingham, Washington. If completed, the terminal would supply growing Asian economies and heap more dirty fuel on the crisis of global warming. It would also turn the local coastline into a coal belt, servicing up to nine freight trains a day. “Goldman Sachs’ stepping away from coal exports is yet another sign from Wall Street that coal export is a losing investment,” said Crina Hoyer, executive director of RESources for Sustainable Communities. We’ll keep fighting to keep dirty coal in the ground where it belongs.
