UK banks act against deep-sea mining

Three of the UK's biggest banks, NatWest, Lloyd's and Standard Chartered, are showing the way and have ruled out funding deep sea mining, with many more major companies now turning their backs on plans to mine the seafloor. A total of £2.28 trillion in potential funding is as result now off-limits to deep sea mining companies!! Ocean Community friends, Blue Marine say: “With growing momentum amongst responsible lenders and businesses rejecting deep sea mining, it’s time for the UK Government to show global leadership and back a moratorium on the practice before it is too late."(Jonny Hughes, Policy Manager at Blue Marine.) We all need to increase pressure on our governments; If you are a UK or British citizen, you can join thousands of others in saying no to deep sea mining by signing this petition today: https://lnkd.in/gGVbmY5V

          It's significant effort for such major banks to divest from deep sea mining.Their realization that they catapult destruction of this important ecosystem is timely and their reaction towards that is definitely plausible.

              These are the actions we need, very encouraging. Deep mining is hazardous to the marine life and the environment al large.

                A bold move, these banks are leading as good examples for other banks to follow. Deepsea mining should be stopped

                          Personally I am not British,but, I highly agree and support this idea we should all collectively, deny and reject what's not right in the mining. And support what's right.

                            We love the action! We cannot only talk. As consumers we can sign petitions, chose the ocean friendly banks, vote for ocean friendly politicians, not use oil and avoid plastics.
