Fossil-Fuel Free Finance

The global climate emergency needs financing for climate solutions, yet state-mandated institutions and companies continue to bankroll coal, oil and gas investments.

And despite international commitments to phase out the exploration and construction of coal power plants, companies and banks are still enabling the expansion of coal industry, which remains the world’s most carbon-intensive and polluting energy source.

The United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) states that if the Paris climate goals are to be achieved, all untouched fossils must stay in the ground, and that all state subsidies for extraction and export must be stopped. Just Finance International calls on governments and financial institutions to take the lead in ending the financing of fossil fuels by export credit agencies and development finance institutions.
