Bank Positively

Most high street banks have grown their business during a particularly extractive part of human development, meaning they are used to investing in oil, gas and mining. A large proportion of money sits with those banks in the form of deposits, investments or mortgages, making their investment decisions important. We can influence the banking sector by making a statement with who we choose to bank with. This will ultimately mean more investment in renewables, sustainable technology and nature.

To shift banks make sure to look at the bank's record in investing in oil and gas, if they’ve made a declaration to stopping deforestation and whether they have an investment strategy in green technology. We can also write to our existing banks to request their record on these things in order to inform our decisions. There are numerous useful sources listed below that will help you to bank positively.
