Royal Bank of Canada and Fossil Fuels
Since the Paris Agreement was signed in 2016, RBC has poured over $263 billion dollars into climate-destroying fossil fuel companies — enabling coal, oil, and gas corporations most responsible for the climate crisis.
RBC consistently violates Indigenous rights. In 2011, RBC promised to ensure that all of its clients have “policies and processes consistent with the standard of free,prior and informed consent” with Indigenous communities. But RBC continues to finance projects that violate Indigenous consent including the Alberta tar sands, Trans Mountain pipeline and the Coastal GasLink pipeline.
Together, we can make RBC realize that continuing to finance fossil fuels is environmentally, financially, and reputationally dangerous. Instead of bankrolling tar sands, extreme extraction projects, and violating Indigenous rights, RBC can be a climate leader by financing a safe and livable future.
RBC is Canada's #1 Worst Fossil Fuel Bank and #5 in the World
RBC has been hiding behind empty promises and vague net-zero commitments while investing in coal, oil, gas expansion projects like the Indigenous rights violating Coastal GasLink pipeline. If enough of us speak out, we can force RBC to clean up its act.
