Climate financeclimate change is the single biggest environmental threat facing our planet. Burning fossil fuels pollutes the atmosphere with greenhouse gases, leading to significant impacts on the planet's ecosystems, including forests, and to extreme weather events, both of which hit the world's poorest hardest. There is scientific consensus that we need to cut global greenhouse emissions drastically if we are to avoid catastrophic climate change. Ran's climate and energy campaign has focused on pushing the biggest banks in the u.s. to end their underwriting of fossil fuels, while engaging, supporting and strengthening the movement of grassroots activists.

We run strategic campaigns with the support of our Network, to move banks to stop investing in companies engaged in deforestation, habitat destruction, species extinction, climate pollution and human rights violations.
