Share this page:
Chase, Wells Fargo, Bank of America and Citibank are the four largest funders of fossil fuels and deforestation in the world.
These banks claim to put their customers’ concerns as their top priority. That means that as a customer, you have a special leverage to push your financial institution to live up to the ethics that they claim to uphold.
That’s why Customers for Climate Justice aims to empower hundreds of Chase, Bank of America, Wells Fargo, and Citibank customers to demand climate justice within their financial institution. Customers will be sending emails, making phone calls, writing good old-fashioned letters, organizing other customers in your area, and more!
The first step is to sign on to an open letter to the CEO of your bank demanding that they take immediate action to address the climate crisis.
Here’s Stop the Money Pipeline’s plan: Once thousands of customers sign-on to these open letters, one of you ― a customer ― will present the letter to the CEO of your bank, ask for a meeting with a group of customers and demand that they take immediate and real action to tackle the climate crisis.
Once you have signed on to the letter, you will be invited to a Customers for Climate Justice Welcome Call. On the call, Chase, Wells Fargo, Bank of America, and Citibank customers from around the world will come together to learn how to leverage their special power as customers to get their financial institutions to finally stop funding fossil fuels and deforestation.
Over the coming months, Stop the Money Pipeline will continue to train customers and take action together. They are planning on supporting customers so that they can easily take action and empower more customers to do the same.
With just one month until the Glasgow Climate Talks, we fully expect these banks to churn out woefully insufficient and greenwashed climate policies. It's time for them to listen to their customers and finally stop funding fossil fuels and deforestation for good.
