TO STOP INVESTING
IN CLIMATE CHAOS.
BlackRock is still the world's biggest investor in coal, oil and gas, and deforestation. They can choose to continue to back extinction, or solutions. Here's how you can help.
On May 20th, join Indigenous and frontline leaders, national figures, artists, and campaigners to discuss solutions to BlackRock’s big climate and human rights problems.
Featuring Indigenous leaders, U.S. Senator Sheldon Whitehouse, U.S. Representative Jesús G. "Chuy" García, Bill McKibben, Dallas Goldtooth, and more.
Despite its big talk on climate leadership, BlackRock is still the world's #1 investor in fossil fuels. Its coal policy only covers 20% of the world's coal companies. It has virtually no policies on oil and gas, deforestation, Indigenous consent or human rights. It has failed to vote for many climate resolutions at companies it owns.
People are sending them a message: until BlackRock takes real action, your climate talk is hot air.
