Civil society to banks: get off fossil fuels!

Over 100 civil society organisations and prominent Australians have signed an open letter, published today, that calls on Australia’s major banks to live up to their climate change commitments.

The letter, signed by environmental and faith-based groups, unions, artists, writers, academics, health professionals, climate change scientists and some of Australia’s most respected musicians calls on the banks to back up their support last year for the Paris climate agreement with action that actually matches this ambition.
