BlackRock invests in climate destruction
The solutions are bold, but possible
BlackRock must stop funding destruction and start leading sustainable finance. We know a full transformation of the financial system can’t happen overnight, but immediate, decisive action is our only chance for a viable future.
In 2020, BlackRock CEO Larry Fink publicly committed to change. We applaud the company’s first steps toward sustainability, but tiny shifts won’t solve our global crisis.
BlackRock is still the world’s number-one investor in fossil fuels and it's still heavily invested in coal. The company has made little progress on deforestation and human rights. Fink has the power to be a true visionary, but BlackRock must take responsibility for the impact of its investments, and act now to dramatically reduce negative climate impacts.
