University of Southampton Boycott Barclays

University of Southampton Boycott Barclays

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

  • As a former student of Soton Uni, I am sad to think that my uni is disregarding ethics and Earth's future by co-operating with a climate-destroyer like Barclays. Soton was (is?) a leader in Oceanography and Engineering - does the uni not see a link between harm to the marine environment, missed opportunities for fossil-free energy, and investing in fossil fuels? Please wake up and do the right thing.
