RBS needs students – both as potential new customers who then stay for life, and as future employees. The bank invests heavily in targeting students, and reports proudly on its successes to its shareholders. This means that students can play a unique role in forcing RBS out of oil. People & Planet groups are putting pressure on RBS to change.
RBS has a legal accountability towards its shareholders. You can raise issues with the bank at any point through the year, but particularly at the AGM.
The oil bank of scotland
RBS-NatWest is driving climate change and feeding
carbon addiction faster than any other British bank. Pouring billions
into fossil fuels and working intimately with oil corporations,
the bank is locking huge emissions into our future.
About the Campaign
People & Planet and PLATFORM are campaigning
for RBS to recognise its climate responsibilities and move its moneyfrom
the dirtiest fossil fuels into sustainable energy.
