We can’t stop climate chaos if banks like RBC keep funding fossil fuels

Canada’s biggest bank, RBC, talks about “purpose” and says climate change is a critical issue. But its funding practices tell a different story:

$208 Billion in fossil fuel funding since Paris

Making RBC the fifth biggest fossil bank on Earth

Financing Coastal GasLink + Line 3

Projects that violate Indigenous rights

$14 Billion in Coal

Making RBC the world's 12th largest funder of coal

It’s code red for humanity, but while our planet literally burns, banks like RBC are pouring more fuel on the fire.

Join the growing global movement to stop the funders of climate change.
