Since the Paris Agreement was signed in 2015, private banks like Barclays and HSBC have provided trillions of dollars in finance to new fossil fuel projects and the companies behind them. Insurers like Lloyd’s of London have covered their risk. Investment managers like Blackrock have kept the money flowing.
To stop catastrophic climate breakdown, we need to cut the ties between the finance sector and fossil fuels.
Register for this three-part series of webinars to hear from speakers from across the climate justice movement. We will understand the role of banks, insurers and investors in financing climate change. We will share our plan to win the campaign for finance to fund our future, not fossil fuels.
Why is finance so important to the climate justice fight? Why are banks a major target? Why is insurance crucial to the fossil fuel industry?
How does Lloyd’s of London work? How can Lloyd’s change? What is Blackrock? Can they use their investor power for good? What are our next steps and how can you get involved?
