The Royal Bank of Scotland is covering up involvement in carbon emissions greater than those of the whole country of Scotland. PLATFORM's report “The Oil & Gas Bank”reveals the extent to which RBS-NatWest is providing the financial fuel driving climate change.
RBS is more "oil" than "royal", as the bank financing oil & gas extraction. Using customers’ cash as financial fuel to drive oil rig and pipeline construction, RBS is accelerating climate chaos and fossil fuel addiction. With global assets of over $1120bn, including NatWest, RBS is determining our energy future.
Pulling RBS out of oil and stemming the flow of cash into new oil development is vital to putting the brakes on runaway climate change.
