Is your bank funding climate change?

Is your bank heavily investing in oil, gas and coal extraction? 1 in 3 people in Britain want their banks to stop investing in fossil fuels. These are socially and environmentally disastrous industries, and so effectively the big banks are driving irreversible climate change. Not in your name? You want to get involved in Move Your Money UK’s new campaign Divest!

If you agree banks should divest from fossil fuels, the Divest! campaign is asking you to take control of your savings and put your bank on notice. Click here to send them an email with a simple ultimatum – either they disclose their investments and vow to take your money out of fossil fuels, or you’ll take your money out of their accounts.

Divest! is giving the big banks 3 months – if they don’t clean up their act, Move Your Money can advise you where to move to support Good Money: where your savings will be contributing to a positive change in the world.

By pledging your support, you are joining a growing movement of divestors that are moving their money out of the problem and into the solution. Check out Move Your Money’s website for more information about the campaign.

Brixton Pound supports ethical banking, and so is backing the Divest! campaign. Take action now and put your bank on notice – “either you divest, or I will!”
