This November, world leaders from nearly 200 countries will meet in Glasgow, Scotland, for the 26th UN climate talks (COP26). It will be the most significant climate summit since the Paris Agreement was signed in 2015.
It will not magically solve the climate crisis, but pledges made there can take a critical step towards ending the fossil fuel era once and for all.
Whatever happens at COP26, we are hopeful, because we are winning and resilient, and across the globe communities are standing together to confront the climate crisis and hold those that perpetuate it accountable.
With people power, and with the pressure on the streets and online, banks and governments will be forced to start moving at the scale and speed necessary. We will step up and be heard.
The world isn’t ending: the era of fossil fuels is. People across the world are rallying against fossil fuels and those who finance the toxic coal, oil and gas industry.
Commercial and private banks will never move at the scale and speed needed to stop the climate crisis, so it’s time for rich governments to step up and make sure their banking systems stop financing fossil fuels, and start financing the just transition.
To keep funding fossil fuels means to knowingly bankroll a climate disaster. We need the world's richest countries to step up their climate finance game right now: stop funding fossil fuels, invest in solutions to the climate crisis instead, everywhere in the world.
