Rob Harrison discusses our new finance report  

Ethical Consumer's recent report looks at ethical banks, ethical pensions and investments. 

In particular our research focuses on how mainstream banks continue to fund fossil fuel projects in an era of escalating climate change. 

We conclude that consumers should divest their money from banks fuelling climate change and should instead move their money to an ethical alternative that supports sustainable projects - such as renewable energy projects.

We have produced a video where Rob Harrison, who led the research, talks about the banking sector and introduces our new carbon divestment campaign
