Raising banking standards
Ensuring banks account for their impact on people and planet.
The lifeblood of the global economy
The financing decisions made by banks today will influence the world we live in tomorrow. Yet the banking sector is not yet doing its bit to avert the worst consequences of climate change or biodiversity loss. This has to change.
We partner with a range of stakeholders, including asset managers, asset owners, NGOs and individual retail investors to demand banks phase out financing to polluting industries, and increases the flow of capital into low-carbon alternatives.
We effect change by:
Ranking banks based on their performance on climate change and other ESG issues.
Publishing technical research to expose the state of the banking sector and identify what needs to be done.
Partnering with institutional and retail investors to get our messages across, such as by filing shareholder resolutions or sending letters to banks together.
