Desjardins

Your money is funding the climate crisis
Your bank doesn't top the charts, but it’s still using your money to lend to fossil fuel companies and projects that are rapidly accelerating the climate crisis.

While you’ve been stashing away money for a car or a weekend get-away, Desjardins has been using your savings to lend to some very questionable fossil fuel friends.

And it's not just a little here and there, we’re talking about large amounts in the 6 years since 197 countries agreed to drastically reduce their greenhouse gas emissions in the Paris Agreement.

The Paris Agreement set the goal to stay under 1.5°C of warming for very good reasons. According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, an increase of just a couple of degrees more could lead to \"substantial species extinction, large risks to global and regional food security\", and an inability to work outside — or even live — in some areas of the world. Our world will become unrecognizable as ocean dead zones, floods, and extreme weather fuel social and economic disruption.
