Bank Green

Remove your money from institutions that invest in carbon intensive activities, and instead invested in more socially and environmentally responsible activities.

Supporting a Net Zero Economy

So far, we’ve focused on how to get our own emissions down to net zero, both directly and indirectly. But there is also a way we can show our support for a net zero economy, outside of our own emissions. The money that we have invested in financial instruments like bank and superannuation accounts may be used to support emissions intensive industries like coal mining and gas-fired power stations. We can use “divestment” as a means of advocating for change within other organisations.

What You Can Do

  Banks

When we remove our money from fossil fuel investments, we’re sending the message that we no longer support these destructive industries. And the more of us that divest, the louder we are.

Superannuation Funds  

Many financial institutions are now offering more responsible investment options, but the most powerful message is to put your money with an institution who has explicitly ruled out supporting irresponsible industries.
