Major Christian charity ditches Barclays over fossil fuel backing

UK charity Christian Aid has decided that it will no longer bank with Barclays due to the multinational bank’s financing of fossil fuels. “Whilst Barclays was able to provide banking services to fragile contexts, their record on fossil fuel finance, and their weak commitment to future improvements in this area meant that we had to seek a more suitable provider,” said Christian Aid’s COO, Martin Birch, in a statement. https://www.offshore-technology.com/news/christian-aid-stops-banking-with-barclays/#:~:text=Barclays%20is%20under%20fire%20for,bank's%20financing%20of%20fossil%20fuels.

    Great to see a Christian charity taking a stand against fossil fuels and divesting from Barclays. It's important for organizations to align their investments with their values and support the transition to renewable energy.

      This serves as a reminder that businesses need to be mindful of their environmental and social impact.
