Tell Carbon Principles Banks: Stop Funding Coal Plants

Coal Plant bannerCoal-fired power plants provide nearly 50 percent of our electricity and, pound for pound, are the planet's dirtiest source of energy. Burning coal is the nation's top source of air pollution and toxic mercury and is responsible for one third of the country's greenhouse gas emissions—nearly 2 billion tons per year.

The banking sector is continuing to finance filthy new coal power plants. Please join us in asking them to stop!

Dear Chief Executive:

Your bank is continuing to finance new coal-fired power plants, despite your adoption of the Carbon Principles.

Coal-fired power plants provide nearly 50 percent of our electricity and, pound for pound, are the planet's dirtiest source of energy. Burning coal is the nation's top source of air pollution and toxic mercury and is responsible for one third of the country's greenhouse gas emissions - nearly 2 billion tons per year.

I urge you to immediately phase out support for all new and existing coal-fired power plants.

Yours,
