5 years ago we made history together enshrined in the Paris Agreement. But world leaders are failing to uphold their commitments to taking serious action on the climate crisis.
2020 has been a reality check, and 2021 must be a time of healing and getting us on the right path. We need a just recovery that puts people and the planet first.
The COVID-19 pandemic forced the postponement of the 26th UN Climate Summit until November 2021. And we need to continue to pressure the world’s dirtiest and most powerful banks and governments to stop funding the climate crisis.
Record breaking climate impacts continue to destroy hundreds of thousands of lives and livelihoods. Why? Because banks, governments, and companies still pour public money — our money — into fossil fuel projects.
We know the solution. It’s time to make fossil fuels a thing of the past by cutting off its life support – money. And to live up to the goals set forth by the Paris Agreement, fossil fuel production must decline immediately by keeping them in the ground and swiftly advance renewable energy to take its place in the context of a just transition.
We need financial institutions and governments to commit to end fossil fuel finance. No money to fossil fuels means no new dirty projects, less pollution, and a chance to not breach 1.5°C and prevent further climate disasters.
From now until the next UN climate gathering, we will come together to pressure some of the world’s dirtiest and most powerful banks and governments to stop funding the climate crisis.
It’s simple — to prevent devastating climate breakdown, we have to end all finance to fossil fuels.
Public and private banks pour hundreds of billions of dollars each year into the climate-wrecking fossil fuel industry. We need to urgently work together to stop fossil fuel finance through sustained public organizing and people power.

There is no UN climate negotiations this year, but instead on Dec 12th, there will be the Climate Ambition Summit co-hosted by the UN, UK, France, Italy and Chile. Activists are still using this time to spotlight the need for urgent action. Follow the actions around the world from Dec 9-14
The Pacific played a pivotal role in pushing countries to adopt more robust commitments – and has continued to lobby for necessary climate measures. However, many industrialized countries are failing to take climate action needed that will keep the planet at a livable temperature of 1.5°C above normal.
With the COP26 negotiations cancelled this year, we still want to make waves about key climate truths. Created by artists across the Pacific, this film series showcases the emotional weight of the climate crisis, the urgency of action, and the way forward. Watch here
Vast sums of money are flowing out of Europe to support fossil fuel projects in Asia, Africa and Latin America, trashing the environment and trampling on human rights. Profit flows back to Europe and into the pockets of millionaire executives and shareholders.
This is what European colonialism looks like in the 21st century.
To prevent devastating climate breakdown, we have to end all finance to fossil fuels. Take action here.
China, Japan, and South Korea have recently announced their goals to reduce carbon emissions to net-zero by 2050, 2060 for China. Even the Philippines declared a moratorium on coal power.
A pledge is the first step to reaching our climate goals. And these countries must walk their talk. Net-zero emissions pledges must be followed up with real action to meet these goals. Learn more here and take action.
