Bank of England: End Fossil Finance

Take action now and push the Bank of England to stop funding the climate crisis and to protect our future.

Take action

The UK’s commercial banks such as HSBC and Barclays give billions to fossil fuel projects that trample on indigenous rights, destroy livelihoods and irreparably damage communities.

The Bank of England could help stop this, but instead they turn a blind eye and continue to funnel public money towards propping up polluting industries.

It’s up to us demand action from the Bank of England and stop banks from funding climate breakdown.

Bank of England: Stop Funding the Climate Crisis!

The Bank of England could cut off the finance flows of UK money to polluting industries and fund the future we need.

We’re calling on the Bank of England Governor, Andrew Bailey: Stop funding the climate crisis and regulate the banks that do.

Dear Andrew Bailey, Governor of the Bank of England

CC Rishi Sunak, UK Chancellor:


  • Stop billion pound bailouts for big polluters with no strings attached. Invest in a green recovery instead. 
  • Make new rules to stop UK banks from financing climate chaos.

  • Work with the Treasury to ensure livelihoods are safe and new jobs are created in the transition to a greener economy.

Yours sincerely,

Grab the Bank of England’s attention by leaving them a performance review on Google and Yelp!

We’re using reviews to get our message to the Bank and show them that their performance on fossil fuel finance definitely isn’t worth 5 stars.

  • I would really like to give the Bank of England a better rating, but as they are handing out no-strings attached bailouts to big polluters, I can only give them one star.
  • As the referee of the UK financial sector, the Bank of England has a moral obligation to cut off the flow of finance to climate-wrecking fossil fuels projects around the world. That means ditching its own dirty bonds and preventing climate criminals from accessing money by setting rules that stop out-of-control commercial banks financing fossil fuel expansion. Until they do so, they are only worthy of a one-star rating.
  • Banks like Barclays and HSBC are profiting off attacks on communities across the world, in places like Vaca Muerta in Argentina and the Alberta Tar Sands. The Bank of England has the power to cut the money pipeline to dirty fossil fuels but are in effect, twiddling their thumbs. Therefore, I hold them responsible for climate breakdown and the assaults on frontline communities.
  • I expect bad behaviour from the UK’s big banks like HSBC, Standard Chartered and Barclays. But I am very disappointed at the Bank of England’s unwillingness to regulate these climate criminals.
  • The Bank of England says that climate change is a “strategic priority” and that they have “an ambitious work programme on climate change”. But that is inconsistent with giving no strings attached bailouts to big polluters like EasyJet, Petrofac and Baker Hughes.
  • We need a just recovery from the Covid-19 pandemic. The UK’s public money should be spent on rebuilding an economy that works for people but the Bank of England is rebuilding for polluters. One star.

Thanks for taking action!
