No Money.
No problem.

As the world transitions off fossil fuels, the Royal Bank of Canada is becoming the fossil fuel lender of last resort, funding companies and fossil fuels that other banks are moving away from, like the tar sands. Without financing from banks like RBC, fossil fuel companies could not continue to increase pollution and oil and gas production. Ignoring the science, RBC bankrolls projects that accelerate climate change, and violate human rights and Indigenous sovereignty, even as we all experience extreme weather every day.

Indigenous Rights Violations
from Your Everyday Bank

RBC proves it has no interest in reconciliation. It funds projects around the world lacking free, prior, and informed consent of Indigenous Peoples. RBC’s fossil financing is damaging sacred Indigenous sites, endangering safe air to breathe, and clean water to drink.

EACOP

The East Africa Crude Oil Pipeline (EACOP) is the world’s largest proposed crude oil pipeline at 897 miles, whose primary financial backer is French fossil fuel company TotalEnergies. EACOP endangers communities, food, and water, and risks locking in fossil fuels for decades.

Trans Mountain Pipeline

The Trans Mountain pipeline (TMX), if built, would ship more than 590,000 barrels per day of highly polluting tar sands crude to the B.C. coast, increasing Canada’s climate emissions and making it impossible to meet our Paris commitments.

    "They talk about reconciliation and they undermine their own words by trying to shove pipelines down our throat, or industry down our throat, and it's just not the way we do business. There will be no pipeline to enter Wet'suwet'en territory."

    “The violence of RBC cannot be ignored any longer. RBC is funding the genocide of our lands and people and it has to stop."

RBC can’t be trusted to do the right thing on climate change

While publicly professing to be a ‘climate leader,’ RBC continues to increase financing for climate chaos-causing coal, oil, and gas. RBC is currently under investigation by Canada’s competition watchdog for misleading advertising.
