RBC is the #1 fossil fuel funding bank in the world
“I know that all banks are funding fossil fuels. But for RBC to be actually increasing it’s fossil fuel funding, and to be #1 in the world, is embarrassing for me” – RBC staff member, Toronto
The climate crisis is getting worse at breakneck speed. The science is clear, there can be no new fossil fuels extracted if we want to stay under 1.5C. Yet, RBC is doubling down and increasing it’s fossil fuel funding. The fossil fuel companies on RBC’s books are causing destruction of land, natural habitats and indigenous rights.
RBC can be a leader and turbocharge the green energy movement. But it’s choosing to do the opposite. That’s why staff are speaking out and sharing thoughts now. It doesn’t matter which department or which role you have, you can join your colleagues and share your thoughts.
