This year, we’re asking 1 million people to commit to leaving big, fossil fuel funding banks behind and join the #MoveToGreen movement.
Let’s see what kind of world we can build together:
Notes About this Image: This interactive display is intended to graphically illustrate how the policies of different financial institutions may affect the environment, but is not meant to depict the precise scope or scale of the impact that such policies may have on the environment. We make no representation as to the policies of financial institutions that are not the subject of the referenced studies or to the policies of affiliates of the financial institutions that are the subject of the referenced studies.
Adjust the sliders below to see how much of an impact a few simple money-moving changes have on the world.
Where do you keep your money?
* ...that banks and brokerages like Wells Fargo, Chase, Bank of America and others helped finance over $450 billion of fossil fuel company and project funding since 2016? They pour money into coal mining, coal plants, tar sands, mountaintop removal mining, oil drilling and help support the companies that make these projects happen. New green, financial firms plant trees and don’t finance fossil fuel projects. (1)(2)
How much of your investments and retirement money are in fossil fuel free mutual funds/stocks?
......that 10% of your investment in an index fund tracking the S&P 500 could be going to fossil fuel companies? By contributing to climate change, fossil fuel projects could hurt species like koalas, ringed seals, leatherback turtles, emperor penguins, polar bears and beluga whales? (3)(4)
Do you spend your money with companies that are trying to reduce their impact on the environment?
...that just 100 large companies around the world are responsible for more than 70% of all global greenhouse gas emissions? (5)
Do you donate to organizations that are helping protect the planet?
...Environmental nonprofits do everything from buying land to helping conserve habitats for endangered animals to rebuilding coral reefs in the oceans?
I’m moving my money out of fossil fuel banks to
help keep our planet green.
Commit to the #MoveToGreen movement at
#MoveToGreen is a movement of people who want to stop climate change by committing to move their money out of fossil fuel funding banks.
Even seemingly simple decisions, like where you deposit and save your money, have a huge impact on the environment. Big banks like Wells Fargo, Chase and Bank of America use your money to help fund projects that are damaging to our planet - projects like removing rainforests to drill for fossil fuels, strip-mining the Appalachians for coal, and building oil pipelines. (1)(2)
Fortunately, there are better options. You can make your spending, saving and investing have a positive impact on the environment by moving your money to a financial firm that does not invest in or lend to fossil fuel projects. By joining the #MoveToGreen movement, we can help save our planet together.
