Banking on Climate Change – 2017 Fossil Fuel Finance Report Card

In partnership with 28 organisations around the world, BankTrack, Rainforest Action Network, Sierra Club and Oil Change International’s annual Fossil Fuel Finance Report Card for 2017 reveals that the world’s biggest banks are continuing to fuel climate change through the financing of extreme fossil fuels.

The ‘Banking on Climate Change’ report finds that 2016 actually saw a steep fall in bank funding for extreme fossil fuels — however despite this overall reduction, banks are still funding extreme fossil fuel projects at a rate that will push us beyond the 1.5 degrees climate change limit determined by the Paris Climate Agreement.
