Right now, some of the biggest banks in the world (and probably in your neighborhood), including JPMorgan Chase, Wells Fargo, and Crédit Agricole are debating whether or not to extend $4 BILLION dollars of credit to Enbridge, the energy giant working for the Line 3 pipeline, and TransCanada, the company behind Keystone XL. They’re doing so despite fierce opposition from Indigenous and First Nations people along the pipeline routes and with complete disregard for the climate chaos this will cause.
Tell Wells Fargo, Chase and Crédit Agricole: NO reckless new funding for climate destruction!
It’s time for banks to STOP funding new infrastructure for destructive fossil fuels and to start investing in renewables instead. A cleaner, brighter future is possible.
From courageous Water Protectors fighting for Indigenous lands along pipeline routes, to lawyers contesting permits, to direct action against the companies themselves - we all have a role to play in this fight.
We need to show banks that we won’t tolerate threats to clean water, clean air, our shared climate and Indigenous rights. Add your voice now.
This fall, your bank is slated to participate in renewing nearly $4 billion in credit to energy companies Enbridge and TransCanada. Banks’ support of these companies continues a legacy of climate damages and abuses of Indigenous rights.
Banks have a choice: you can walk away from Enbridge and TransCanada and from expansion of the tar sands. Wall Street lenders and international banks can refuse to profit from climate disaster, and join a collective global effort to build a thriving future.
I encourage you to do the right thing, to walk away from these dirty projects and leave a legacy you can be proud of. The planet depends on it.
