BlackRock CEO Larry Fink likes to pay lip service to the idea that preventing climate change matters to him and to his company, and that corporations must act with social responsibility. But his company isn’t backing up his words with action.
BlackRock is backing fossil fuel and palm oil companies that are building new polluting plants and cutting down rainforests worldwide -- fueling the climate crisis that is getting worse every day. BlackRock could pull their money out of these destructive industries and be part of the solution to the climate crisis. But we must push them to act. Together, we can convince BlackRock to invest in climate solutions, not dirty fossil fuels!
