“Be part of actions all around Australia and help us send a message to the big banks: “If you choose fossil fuels, your customers will choose another bank!”
The big banks have broken their promises to help keep global warming below two degrees.
Since publicly supporting the Paris agreement’s two degree limit, Commonwealth Bank, ANZ, NAB and Westpac have loaned a combined $5.6 billion to fossil fuels around the world.
It’s time to send the big banks a clear message: “If you choose fossil fuels, your customers will choose another bank!”
That’s exactly the message we’ll be sending on 8 October 2016, giving customers the power to take a stand against the banks dirty lending activities on a national day of action.
If you don’t want your savings being used to finance projects that destroy the environment and make climate change worse, sign up to join us on Divestment Day 2016!”
