University of Cambridge Boycott Barclays

University of Cambridge Boycott Barclays

While Barclays continues finance fossil fuel projects and companies we want University of Cambridge to break all ties with Barclays including sponsorship and banking services.

By signing this petition I also personally pledge to not bank with Barclays until they stop funding climate chaos.

Why is this important?

We cannot afford to construct any new infrastructure which relies on fossil fuel extraction. We cannot dig any new coal mines, drill any new oil fields, build any more pipelines.

Yet right now, projected investment in new fields, mines, and transportation infrastructure over the next twenty years is worth $14 trillion. Barclays is a major investor in fossil fuel infrastructure across the globe it's time for them to halt their support for the fossil fuel industry before they crash the climate.

Reasons for signing

  • There is no way that we can continue extracting fossil fuels if we want a half decent planet to live on. I care about the future and Barclays, who only seem to care about money have no part in that future if they continue to invest as they do.
