TO STOP INVESTING
IN CLIMATE CHAOS.
BlackRock is still the world's biggest investor in coal, oil and gas, and deforestation. It can choose to continue to back extinction, or solutions. Here's how you can help.
The European Commission's own Ombudswoman has now confirmed that the EU was in conflict when it hired BlackRock, the world's #1 investor in coal, oil and gas, as an advisor on its new sustainable banking regulations.
Sign the petition to the EU to cancel the deal, or send a tweet or social post to the EU demanding they cancel the deal.
TELL FINK: STOP FUNDING CLIMATE DESTRUCTION
BlackRock is still failing on climate. While it took some positive steps earlier this year, it has made little progress on coal, arctic drilling, tar sands, deforestation or Indigenous rights. BlackRock continues to pour billions into the very companies making the climate crisis worse.
Send a message to CEO Larry Fink: visionary leadership on climate requires bolder action from BlackRock.
