Wall Street turns its back on Mountaintop Removal coal mining
After sustained campaigning by RAN, eight of Wall Street's biggest banks have developed public policies limiting their appetite for investment in mountaintop removal (MTR) coal mining. By 2011, MTR policies or statements had been released by banks including Credit Suisse, JP Morgan Chase, Morgan Stanley and Wells Fargo, PNC bank and UBS. The policies were assessed by RAN in the 2011 MTR report card. RAN and others continue to scrutinize implementation of these policies.
