BIG BUSINESS, SAVE OUR CLIMATE!
Reduce the harm your companies cause to our climate.
HSBC halve your financing of fossil fuels, and double your investments in clean energy, by the end of 2019.
RWE (Npower) cut your carbon pollution by 40% and increase your proportion of electricity from renewable sources to 10% (or more!), by the end of 2019.
Danone cut your greenhouse gas emissions by 15%, ensure there’s 75% minimum recycled plastic in your bottles, and introduce a bottle deposit scheme, by the end of 2019.
Why is this important?
Big businesses need to take responsibility, and stop harming our climate. Throughout the world more and more wildfires, heatwaves, and floods show that we must take urgent action to achieve a safe and healthy climate.
Unlike some other banks, HSBC invests much less in solar or wind energy, which are now good value. You can switch to a less harmful bank.
Energy generator and supplier Npower is mostly owned by the huge multination RWE, which uses an awful lot of coal. You can switch to another company which uses clean energy.
Danone’s brands – including Evian and Volvic – sell bottles made of unrecycled plastic.
Once they shape up and commit to making these changes, we'll target other irresponsible companies – and you can suggest some.
By signing and sharing this petition you’re telling businesses they must stop harming our climate NOW.
