Tell Wells Fargo Bank to Stop Funding Dirty Energy

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Image Design, LLC

Wells Fargo Bank, one of America's largest banks and partner to many overseas banks and corporations, is a top financier of destructive oil, coal, logging, and mining operations that contribute to global warming, ecosystem destruction, and human rights abuses.

The corrupt power of their finances funds organizations that have worked to rollback forest, endangered species and clean water protections devastating eco-systems and communities from Alaska to Appalachia.

Other US banks, like Citigroup, JP Morgan Chase and Goldman Sachs, have taken a more responsible approach. Yet, Wells Fargo still does not have a comprehensive environmental and social policy.

It's time Wells Fargo Bank took responsibility for the destructive impact of its investments and charted a new course toward justice and sustainability. Sign this petition telling Wells Fargo Bank to get their act together!

I personally disliked Wells Fargo before reading this. And After reading this I personally disliked them even more.

ERIC - What I find even more ironic is that they advertise energy efficient mortgages and then finance dirty energy. Thanks for the link - 19,310 signatures.

Based from my own experiences, there banking, lending and customer relations practices are just as bad as the environmental practices.

I signed the petition. Thanks for the awareness. Wells Fargo Bank (and soon many other) are funding dirty energy with our money and trust.
