Did you know that REI – a company which prides itself on its commitment to the environment and improving access to the outdoors – uses the same banks which fund fossil fuel projects?
Join us in asking REI to do better and divest from banks that fund the fossil fuel industry.
It’s because of the support of banks like Wells Fargo and U.S. Bank that the Dakota Access Pipeline was built, against the wishes of the Standing Rock Sioux tribe. Projects like these violate indigenous treaty rights, threaten our water, and contribute more carbon emissions into our atmosphere. Fossil fuels must stay in the ground if our planet is to remain livable.
REI claims to put purpose over its profits, and prioritize environmental stewardship over its bottom line. In fact it is a consumer cooperative, meaning that REI customers own it and acting together, can have a lot of sway over the decisions its executives make.
Most of REI’s customers probably don’t know that their money is being stored in banks which then lend it to the fossil fuel industry. Help us pressure REI to act with integrity and divest from fossil fuels.
