Today @RBC holds its online AGM. While the #CoronaCrisis is the priority, RBC should also take responsibility for its role in the #ClimateCrisis. Let’s review the extent of this responsibility. #FossilBanksNoThanks
@RBC is the biggest dirty energy financier in Canada and ranks fifth in the world according to the latest #BankingonClimateChange report. It has provided the fossil fuel industry with USD 141 billion since #COP21, with USD 40 billion for fossil fuel expansion
@RBC is the second biggest financier of tar sands in the WORLD and thus a major contributor to #ClimateDestruction. Since #Paris, @RBC has provided USD 22 billion to the 30 top tar sands companies and the 5 key tar sands pipeline companies. #BankingonClimateChange
In terms of climate policies, @RBC is also not performing well. With a score of 1 out of 200 in the #BankingonClimateChange report, it is clear that RBC is not taking the #ClimateCrisis seriously. Today we are calling on RBC’s shareholders to demand ambitious climate action!
