LETTER: Banks should be forced to publish data


Many of us are making real efforts to combat climate change by cutting our own carbon emissions and working to make our local communities more sustainable.

But banks and pension funds in which most of us invest our money are pouring billions of pounds into dirty coal, oil and gas around the world .

We have very little say in how they spend our money. So as part of a campaign by the World Development Movement, I’m calling on the government to make banks and pension funds publish the carbon emissions from the fossil fuel projects they finance, so that we can start holding them to account and make them change their ways.
