University of Oxford Boycott Barclays

University of Oxford Boycott Barclays

While Barclays continues to finance fossil fuel projects and companies we want the University of Oxford 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

  • I am currently in the process of leaving Barclays, in favour of the very ethical Triodos, for this precise reason.
  • Money talks to those who are not sympathetic to our moral case. Producers need investment to continue in the bad old ways.
