Demands

Banks, as one of the key engines behind many human economic activities, must be accountable for the impacts of their finance activities on nature.

  • 1

    Banks to disclose and radically reduce their impact on nature and stop finance for new fossil fuels, deforestation, overfishing and ecosystem destruction.

  • 2

    Governments to stop protecting banks’ role in biodiversity destruction and rewrite the rules of finance to hold banks liable for the damage caused by their lending.

  • 3

    People everywhere to have a say in how our money is invested, and a right to stop banks from causing serious harm to people and planet.
