Clean Tour Supporter Sign-on Statement

"We support a Tour Down Under that promotes sustainability and showcases South Australia’s forward-looking energy policy.
Events SA partnering with Santos is inconsistent with the promotion of a healthy, clean sport such as cycling. Santos is a fossil fuel company committed to expansion of the gas industry, including controversial ‘fracking’ projects. Santos has no credible transition plan towards net zero emissions.
Events SA should seek a new naming rights partner for 2023 with credentials that better align with the event values and Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) sustainability principles."

To discuss further, please email fossilfreesa18@gmail.comor phone Paul on XX .
