Tell JPMorgan Chase: Stop Funding Fossil Fuels

Submitted by Scott Kitson on December 18, 2019

As the climate crisis intensifies, we need green businesses to continue to take action for the sake of people and the planet. Many of our Green Business Network members are working to reduce their emissions, produce products that are easy on the earth, and promote recycling and waste reduction.

Have you taken climate action yet as a business leader to stop bank financing of the fossil fuel industry?

Green America—as part of the international Fossil Banks, No Thanks campaign—is continuing to pressure JPMorgan Chase to stop financing the fossil fuel industry.

JPMorgan Chase is now the biggest funder of fossil fuels in the world—including the expansion of the fossil fuel sector through ultra-deep-water drilling, Arctic drilling, tar sands extraction, fracking, and funding for more liquefied natural gas terminals.

Since the adoption of the Paris Agreement, JPMorgan Chase has become:

  • The top banker of fossil fuels, outpacing the second highest bank funder by nearly 30%.
  • The biggest funder for the top 100 companies responsible for expanding fossil fuels, outpacing the second highest bank funder by nearly 70%.

We need green business leaders like you to take a moment now to sign our letter to Jamie Dimon, CEO of JPMorgan Chase, urging the bank to stop financing fossil fuels and to invest in clean energy.

Thank you for taking action today.
