Pledge to get your money out of banks destroying the Great Barrier Reef

Goal: 5,000

Australia's "Big 4" banks are financing the destruction of the Great Barrier Reef. Since 2008, they've loaned a staggering $19 billion to new coal and gas projects in Australia -- including dangerous new projects that threaten some of our country's most precious ecosystems.

Thousands of customers have already called on Westpac, Commonwealth, NAB and ANZ to stop investing our money in fossil fuels. But so far, those calls have fallen on deaf ears. That's why it's time to show the banks that investing in destruction isn't just bad for the environment and our communities -- it's also bad for business.

If the big banks won't divest from fossil fuels, we'll divest from them.

SumOfUs is coming together with our friends at 350.org, Market Forces and FossilFree to organize a massive consumer push to get our money out of climate destruction. Will you pledge to be a part of it? We'll provide you with all the information and support you need to make the switch to an established, reputable bank that doesn't invest in fossil fuels.

Pledge to get your money out of climate destruction, and to sign up for the support and information you need to help you do it.

We need to act now -- already, fossil fuel companies are looking for funds to build new gas ports on the Great Barrier Reef, and even mines in some of our state forests. And they are turning to Westpac, Commonwealth, NAB and ANZ to loan them the money to get the projects off the ground.

Already, hundreds and hundreds of people have pledged to close their bank account with the Big Four Banks on May 2 and 3 -- but we need more people to do the same. Our friends at Market Forces have done all the research to identify the credible banking alternatives who have agreed not to invest in coal and gas.

Switching banks takes some work -- but nothing sends a more powerful message about why these banks need to stop investing in destruction. It doesn't take many people actively making the switch for banks to get the message that they need to change their practices.

If you pledge today, our friends at 350.org and FossilFree will be in touch directly to help you with all the information you need to make the switch.

Please note: FossilFree is a referral service for people wanting to switch to a fossil free bank, super fund or energy provider. SumOfUs has no financial relationship with FossilFree: We're connecting you with them just to help you make the switch.
