Bringing BlackRock to the west coast's biggest climate march

Yesterday was the massive "Rise for Climate, Jobs, and Justice" march in San Francisco and at 800 other places around the world. The march saw 30,000 people take to the streets to demand racial and economic justice, an end to fossil fuel production, and a just transition to 100% renewable energy that supports workers and communities.


Our BlackRock crew had a section of the march, raising awareness of BlackRock's Big Problem - the fact that they own more fossil fuels than any other investor and are thus the biggest driver of climate change on the planet that most people have never heard of.


The rest of the week saw our partners hosting and attending numerous events around the Global Climate Action Summit, on topics such as climate finance, stopping the growth of fossil fuels, and insurance and other financial mechanisms that are underpinning the climate crisis.


BlackRock you've got a BIG problem and you are officially on notice!
