Sydney Morning Herald reported that Engineering consultancy GHD has had its long-standing ties to a prominent engineering charity group severed because of its work on Adani's Carmichael coal mine in central Queensland. Engineers Without Borders Australia, which has counted GHD as a sponsor for its community work at home and abroad, said it had decided to respectfully cease its partnership with the firm. It said "EWB is committed to using our role in the engineering sector to support the global transition to renewable energy as quickly as possible and reduce the market demand for fossil-fuel driven energy. Although GHD share this objective, EWB’s view is that GHD’s involvement in the Adani Mining Carmichael coalmine project is at odds with this position.”

The decision to cut ties with GHD is understood to have been an agonising one for EWB, requiring multiple internal meetings and discussions with GHD.
