Fossil fuel gamble
Banks and insurers pour billions each year into the fossil fuel industry, fuelling climate change, exploitation and human rights violations. As a result people and the environment suffer. Adding insult to injury, when their reckless gambles fail, it’s us ordinary people who need to bail them out – while so many are already struggling to pay our rising bills.
This is why Change Finance will go to Basel this year. Together with a coalition of frontline communities, NGOs campaigning on finance regulation, and grassroots climate movements, we are organising a special edition of the Change Finance Forum as part of the “Peoples’ Forum for Climate Justice and Financial Regulation” on the 22-25 of June. The event will take place around the annual meeting of the Bank for International Settlements (BIS) in Basel, Switzerland, on June 25.
