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. You can influence the banking sector by making a statement with who you bank with. This will ultimately mean more investment in renewables, sustainable technology and nature. To shift banks make sure you look at the banks 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. You can, if you like, write to your existing bank to request their record on these things in order to inform your decision. There are numerous useful sources which we list below that will help
