National Australian Fossil-Fuel Divestment Day

Join the movement on May 30th, 2017, wherever you happen to be in Australia, when we say 'No More' to banks investing in the outdated and toxic fossil fuel industry.

On May 30th, 2017, we will be closing our accounts with the banks whom invest in fossil fuels, and opening new accounts with environmentally concious banks which don't invest in fossil fuel extraction.

This national divestment day will be Australia-wide. Please visit the link below to find out if your current bank is investing in fossil fuels, if it is, we ask that you join us in divesting from these banks, wherever you may be in Australia, and start a new account with a cleaner and environmentally friendlier bank near you (which can be found by clicking on the 'Banks with no current record of funding fossil fuels' section on the website linked below).
