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:

$262 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

51% increase in tar sands financing in 2021

Lending $34.5B to the world's dirtiest energy project since 2016

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.
