Tell the Big Banks to Stop Funding Climate Change
0 have signed. Let’s get to 25,000!
$115 billion. That’s how much the world’s biggest banks pumped into “extreme fossil fuel” projects in 2017 alone.*
Here’s the kicker: those are your dollars directly fueling climate change.
Big Banks finance fossil fuel companies through loans and investments using the money we trust them to hold—projects like the Dakota Pipeline (DAPL) or offshore/Arctic drilling couldn’t happen without it.
The list of top offenders includes Chase, Citi, Bank of America, Morgan Stanley, Goldman Sachs, and Wells Fargo.
Any of those names sound familiar?
We can and must do better!
Let’s commit to break that destructive cycle by voting with our feet—we’ll move our money to green banking and investing options.
Today we’re asking you to take the #MovetoGreen pledge: I commit to start moving my money into fossil fuel-free banking and investments that are sustainable—so my money will help, not hurt, the planet and people.
Imagine: together, we will get 1 million Americans to commit to move to green banking and investment by Earth Day 2019—ourselves, our friends, our families—and we will make a real difference in the fight against climate change this year.
There is a growing movement toward moving money away from fossil fuels, including steps taken by cities like Kansas City and New York City, organizations like the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation and the Rockefeller Brothers Funds, and colleges across the country.
We can’t wait any longer. Since 2001, we’ve seen 17 of the 18 hottest years on record. Doing nothing is no longer an option.
Now it’s time for all of us to step up and join the green revolution in banking and investing.
Sign the pledge and share it widely, because tomorrow’s planet depends on what we do today.
We do have the power to change things. Together we can finally take on the fossil fuel industry, and win.
