This is an Emergency

Why we should act now?

Our money, our savings, our pension plans are currently invested by our bankers into financial portfolios which finance environmentally and socially destructive economic activities.

By ignoring this, you are funding the climate crisis.

Your bank earns from your money, make sure it invests the way you want. As customers, we can demand that our money should be managed to take the climate emergency into account.

What do we want?

  • To move large amounts of investment funds away from Carbon-intensive companies

  • Push the retail banker to systematically offer climate friendly products

We are witnessing climate breakdown

How to Act Now?

If you think YOUR MONEY should NEVER finance: tar sands, arctic drilling, deforestation, palm oil production, land grabbing in developing countries, pesticides production and social exploitation, CLEAN UP YOUR ACT:

  • Speak to your banker: They may not be aware of these issues and this is an occasion to show them you care, and to force them to provide clear explanations about your bank’s actions. You may use one of the templates provided on this website in the HOW TO ACT NOW section.
  • Find your truth: see links of external expert organisations on this website – LINKS
  • Divest your money from dirty funds and ask for Sustainable and Responsible banking solutions
  • Show you care: we pledge to speak to our banks about the climate emergency, we pledge to divest from non sustainable and non responsible banking solutions.

I PLEDGE TO…

Business as usual is leading us towards extinction and we must demand deep systemic change that will transform how we sustain ourselves on this planet. Below we’re challenging ourselves to make two pledges to question our current financial system and divest from non-sustainable and non-responsible banking solutions.

Some of the recent pledges people have made to both challenge the system and divest
