Around the world, organisers and organisations are running strategic campaigns to take on big financial players, and the governments and regulators that let them finance fossil fuels instead of investing in our communities and countries. Together, we can stop finance giants from investing in fossil fuels and instead in our communities.
Move Beyond Coal
Together, we can solve Australia’s biggest contribution to the climate crisis. Join the movement!
It’s time for investors to step up. With their full shareholder power, there is still time to prevent the worst effects of climate change.
Private Equity Climate Risks
Private equity is buying up excessive amounts of fossil fuel assets – oil wells, pipelines, power plants, operating them out of the public eye and exploiting gaps and loopholes in regulation.
Bonds are a critical source of funding for companies seeking to expand their coal, oil and gas activities – these are Toxic Bonds.
Vanguard is sinking your future. By pouring billions into fossil fuels, Vanguard is steering the world toward financial and climate disaster.
590,000 more barrels of tar sands each day. A 700% increase in oil tankers in the Salish Sea. A threat to endangered Orca whales. Locking Canada into a fossil fuel economy. A violation to the climate and to Indigenous Rights. This is the new Trans Mountain pipeline project. And it's why it must not be built.
Stop the East African Crude Oil Pipeline
French oil giant Total and the China National Offshore Oil Corporation are on the cusp of building a massive crude oil pipeline right through the heart of Africa – displacing communities, endangering wildlife and tipping the world closer to full-blown climate catastrophe. The East African Crude Oil Pipeline needs to be stopped and we have a plan to do exactly that.
Mining and burning coal is the leading cause of climate change. But as the world races to solve the climate crisis, mining giant Adani are trying to build the biggest coal mine in Australia's history. Join the #StopAdani movement.
Stop Putin's 100 biggest bank rollers: ending finance for Putin’s fossil fueled regime will help end the war on Ukraine.
BlackRock’s Big Problem
BlackRock is the world’s biggest asset manager, with USD $8.5 trillion in assets under management. It’s also one of the world’s top investors in climate destruction.
Bank On Our Future
From 2016 to 2020, the world’s 60 largest banks invested $3.8 trillion into fossil fuel projects and companies. That’s a lot of coal mines, pipelines, and dirty factories. While many of us do our part to slow climate change, banks use our money (the cash we deposit or pay on our mortgages) to prop up the very companies making climate change worse.
Insure Our Future US
Insurance companies are supposed to protect us from catastrophic risks. Yet when it comes to the largest threat to humanity – climate change – insurers are perpetuating dependence on fossil fuels by insuring new coal, oil and gas projects. Insure Our Future U.S. is a campaign holding the U.S. insurance industry accountable for its role in the climate crisis.
Insure Our Future International
Insurance companies have a responsibility to immediately stop insuring fossil fuel expansion. Except for a few laggards, most insurers have stopped insuring new coal projects under pressure from the Insure Our Future campaign. However, contradicting their own climate commitments, most insurers continue to underwrite the expansion of the oil and gas industry.
One for One
If financial institutions want to gamble with our future, it needs to be with their own money, not ours. For every dollar they invest in fossil fuels, they must use a dollar of their own funds to cover any future losses themselves, rather than rely on government bailouts. This simple One-for-One rule will quickly turn fossil fuels into a highly unattractive investment, and effectively stop the financing of new fossil fuel projects. We are building a global movement to push politicians and central banks to put this simple rule in place.
