Tell RBC: Stop financing the climate crisis

RBC remains among the worst financiers of climate chaos in the world. They are making billions in profit while disregarding the future of our planet and generations to come.

Since the Paris Agreement, RBC’s funding for fossil fuels, tar sands, and coal have all increased. In public, they tell us they care about the climate crisis, but behind closed doors RBC has provided over $200 billion in fossil fuels financing since 2016.

In the middle of a climate crisis, instead of transitioning away from fossil fuels, RBC has funded fossil fuel expansion to the tune of $79 billion.

Across the world, banking giants are phasing out fossil fuels after pressure from climate activists. But Canadian banks – RBC being the worst of all – lag far behind.

With enough public pressure, we can push RBC to listen to Canadians and get with the times. If we allow RBC to greenwash its image and continue its support for Big Oil, we have no chance at averting the worst of the climate crisis. Will you join us and tell RBC to stop financing the climate crisis?


Our demands are simple and becoming increasingly standard among banks outside of Canada. We are calling on RBC to:

  1. Immediately stop funding fossil fuel expansion: We need to be transitioning away from fossil fuels. Financing billions in new fossil fuel production means our climate goals are unattainable.
  2. Commit to a detailed net-zero plan that ends coal financing now, reduces emissions by 50% by 2030, and hit net-zero by 2040.
  3. Respect Indigenous rights: End all funding for projects and companies that do not have free, prior, and informed consent from Indigenous communities.
