Responsible finances

Responsible finances

My pledge is to move my money away from banks that fund fossil fuels and change my superannuation investment to sustainable choices. Despite the International Energy Agency stating that there is “no room for new or expanded gas, coal and oil projects”; and the big four banks committing to the Paris agreement, they are still funding huge fossil fuel projects each year. Superannuation companies are also cashing in on fossil fuel investments, but we can choose to move our bank accounts and super to a responsible lenders and investors. Many people are unaware that their money is being invested in this way and that they can make a choice to move away from unsustainable investments. If everyone did this, we could send a huge message to financial companies that it is not ok to use our money to fund climate destruction, and this could see them changing their lending and investment practices.
