Action for week starting 14 October – Banks

This week’s action is targeting our banks, a number of which are making a significant contribution towards climate change, by investing in new fossil fuel projects that will make it impossible for the Paris Agreement target of 2 degrees to be met.

Since 2008 the Big Four Australian banks have loaned $70 billion to fossil fuel projects.

At the website marketforces/info/switch banks you can find a table which shows the fossil fuel investment positions of over 120 banks, credit unions and building societies.

If you find your bank is supporting fossil fuels, a Resource section provides handy step-by-step materials to help you switch banks if you decide to.
