Your bank is good.
While NatWest does still finance fossil fuels, this made up less than 1% of its total portfolio in 2021, while 85% of its total energy financing went towards low-carbon sources, including renewables.
This is above the 80% threshold that is required to meet the Paris Agreement's goal of a 1.5°C world and meets our criteria for a good bank. As NatWest continues to adopt better policies, we expect this trend to continue.
Bank.Green was founded on the belief that banks have had an easy time from their customers for too long. Mass movements will pull us out of the climate crisis – and they’ll pull your bank out, too.
Our mission is to encourage as many people as possible to take a stand - to refuse to let their money fuel environmental destruction any longer. Considering who you bank with, we think you probably agree. This is your chance to spread the word with us.
We can’t say it better than environmentalist Bill McKibben: “Money is the oxygen on which the fire of global warming burns.” But don’t wait for the fire department to turn up – join us!
