I hope you are safe and in good health.
The first-ever online gathering of the Affected Communities of ICBC's Coal Financing will be happening on the 21st of June, Monday, at 7 AM GMT – and you are invited!
The Industrial and Commercial Bank of China's (ICBC) shareholders’ meeting is also set on the same day, so let's leverage this opportunity to have the voices of the affected communities heard by taking action together.
As the world strives to address the multiple crises brought by the climate emergency and COVID-19, it is now more important than ever that banks like ICBC forge a pathway to a just recovery. It is possible — if they stop financing fossil fuels like coal, everywhere.
Join us and listen to powerful and inspiring stories of communities from Indonesia, Zimbabwe, Pakistan, Turkey, Vietnam, and Kenya – all fighting for their right to live a safer and more equitable future.
We've witnessed a wave of incredible victories against fossil fuels finance recently – from the IEA saying that there's no need for investment in fossil fuels to keep the planet at a liveable temperature of 1.5ºC, to the world's richest nations announcing they will no longer fund new fossil fuels.
Let's seize the occasion to put pressure on ICBC to show real leadership and follow the lead of the Chinese government to help meet climate goals and a just recovery from the multiple crises the world is facing.
