What is the Equinor out coalition

Representing communities in Argentina, Brazil, Canada, UK, Tanzania and Norway, we form a global movement of people and organisations demanding that the Norwegian oil giant Equinor end all exploration of new oil and gas reserves. 

Since we came together in 2022, we have fostered cooperation, mutual support, and shared learning. Together, we have taken action to stop Equinors worldwide expansion in oil and gas. We have supported local resistance and added legal hurdles to Equinors projects on a global stage, amplifying these messages to both Norwegian audiences and Equinor themselves. 

We have campaigned to influence the Norwegian Government and their expectations of Equinor as its owner. We have campaigned for the government to act on their expectations that Equinor operates within the goal of keeping global warming below 1.5 degrees celsius.

Our national campaigns have built up momentum to stop the investment decisions for  projects such as the Rosebank oil field in the UK, Bay du Nord in Canada, offshore ventures in Argentina and Bacalhau in Brazil. Additionally,  we had a win in Norway with the Wisting project that Equinor put their investment decision on hold in November 2022. 

United, we are stronger than ever and our network continues to grow. If you or your group shares our vision and could benefit from working with us, you are welcome to come join us!
