Leading global banks are ending financing relationships with mountaintop removal coal producers. But Barclays, the British banking giant, poured $550 million dollars into the horrific practice in 2013.
Mountaintop removal mining (MTR) obliterates mountains and poisons communities in Appalachia. In 2013, Barclays was the #1 financier of MTR coal worldwide.
People speaking out all over the world have pushed banks like Wells Fargo, BNP Paribas and JPMorgan Chase to start moving away from MTR financing. The smart money has realized that the reputational and financial risks of supporting mountaintop removal coal are too urgent to ignore any longer.
Let’s make sure Barclays gets out of the mountain destruction business as well.
