Campaign Update: “Carbon capital” campaign by World Development Movement


From an email that landed in our inbox –

“This week, WDM is launching its new ‘Carbon Capital’ campaign to fight dirty finance.

“The campaign will expose how the UK financial sector is bankrolling climate change by ploughing billions into dirty fossil fuel projects which are devastating people’s lives around the world.

“As a first step, we are calling for pension funds and other shady financiers to be made to come clean on the emissions created through its dirty investments:

“New regulation coming into force later this year will mean that the UK’s biggest businesses will have to report on their carbon emissions. But the financial sector has been let of the hook from disclosing the climate impacts of their investments.

Find out how much your bank has poured into coal power and email Vince Cable to demand that the financial sector is forced to come clean on the carbon footprint of its investments.

All the best,

Kirsty Wright
Climate campaigner, WDM

  1. Even though RBS has millions invested in fossil fuels, especially carbon intensive and highly polluting ‘Tar Sands’, they have come top of US and UK Green investment leagues???
