Greenpeace climbers hang climate change banner on CBD’s tallest building

The two Greenpeace climbers who are scaling the outside of the tallest building in Wellington have unfurled the first of a series of banners.

Abigail Smith and Nick Hanafin have been climbing the Majestic Centre since dawn this morning, to reach the headquarters of Austrian oil giant, OMV.

They have deployed a pink banner reading, ‘It’s a climate emergency’.

The climb is expected to take all day and if they can make it to OMV’s offices on the 20th floor, they will deliver a message about climate change.
