Is your bank investing in fossil fuels?
Global Divestment Day is on Friday February 13 and it’s a great time to find out!
Between 2008 and 2013 ANZ, Commonwealth, NAB and Westpac have loaned almost $20 billion to fossil fuel projects in Australia.
The big banks manage the majority of Australians’ money; they need to be held accountable for how it’s used.
It’s not only the big banks who are acting unethically though, and you can find out whether your bank is investing in fossil fuels here. You'll also see a list of banks who are behaving ethically for when you're ready to make the switch.
While our banks are making record $29 billion in profits by cashing in on high polluting projects, it’s been another tough year for the world’s climate, with 2014 officially deemed the hottest year on record.
If we’re going to fight climate change head on, we need to change the way we invest our money and tell these polluting industries that we don’t support their business.
