“Be part of actions all around Australia and help us send a message to the big banks: â€œIf you choose fossil fuels, your customers will choose another bank!â€
The big banks have broken their promises to help keep global warming below two degrees.
Since publicly supporting the Paris agreementâ€™s two degree limit, Commonwealth Bank, ANZ, NAB and Westpac have loaned a combined $5.6 billion to fossil fuels around the world.
Itâ€™s time to send the big banks a clear message: â€œIf you choose fossil fuels, your customers will choose another bank!â€
Thatâ€™s exactly the message weâ€™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 donâ€™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!”
