Description (excerpt):

Financial companies are increasingly being recognized – by their clients, shareholders, regulators, and the general public – as climate actors, with a responsibility to mitigate their climate impact. For the banks highlighted in this report, the last year has brought a groundswell of activism demanding banks cut their fossil fuel financing, at the same time that increasingly extreme weather events have further underscored the urgency of the climate crisis. Nevertheless, the report reveals that the business practices of the world’s major private-sector banks continue to drive us toward climate disaster.
