Triodos is the first bank to join the Fossil Fuel Non Proliferation Treaty Initiative

It's not often you will see me send climate love to a bank or financial institution but here comes the moment! Right before the start of COP28, the Dutch bank Triodos Bank took a groundbreaking step by backing the Fossil Fuel Non-Proliferation Treaty, becoming the first financial institution to support the global initiative. The treaty aims to phase out coal, oil, and gas from existing production.

"We are asking governments across Europe to commit to a Fossil Fuel Non-Proliferation Treaty to fast track a fair energy transition - and we are calling on other business and financial institutions to join us in taking a lead on climate action." Pretty inspiring for a bank, may others follow!
The coalition behind the Treaty pushes for the critical need for a binding global agreement, citing the disparity between climate goals and ongoing approvals of new fossil fuel projects. You can learn more about the Treaty here:

                  Triodos Bank's historic decision to support the Fossil Fuel Non-Proliferation Treaty is a commendable move toward sustainable finance. As the first financial institution to back this global initiative, Triodos sets an inspiring precedent for the banking sector. By advocating for the phase-out of coal, oil, and gas, the bank aligns with the urgent need for a fair energy transition. Their call for governments and other businesses to join in reflects a proactive stance in the fight against climate change. 🌍💚 #ClimateActionLeadership #SustainableFinance
