They’re calling it a "heat apocalypse" – Europe is literally melting, with roads and runways turning into warped globs of sticky, hot tar. The UK just suffered through its hottest day in history. Arctic permafrost is melting 43x faster than before.
This is not normal. Climate change is destroying our planet already – and yet somehow keeps accelerating.
But the worst offenders behind it – a rotten, predatory financial sector that has poured an unbelievable $4.6 trillion into fossil fuels since the Paris agreement – are flying completely under the radar.
We’re going to change that.
SumOfUs has a plan to build a crack team of campaigners and investigators to expose the financial industry’s responsibility for this emergency, then run massive campaigns in the media and with shareholders to force them to change. We’ll shine the spotlight on these giants like never before. It could be a turning point for the planet, but we can’t do it without your help.
Will you chip in to hold the worst climate criminals to account?
- Build a team of expert climate defenders to run mega-campaigns that expose the worst offenders;
- Make the CEOs famous for their role in climate destruction, hounding them at public appearances and splashing their faces on billboards and in the media;
- Organise employees of targeted investment banks to oppose their companies’ policies from the inside;
- File shareholder resolutions around the world to change the rules for investing in favour of the planet.
