Climate change? Not with my money E-mail
Amsterdam, June 9, 2007 - Dutch banks cause their investment three times as much CO2 emissions throughout the Netherlands in one year. Banks invest 20 times more climate damaging projects such as oil and coal, than in climate-friendly, sustainable energy. From the Dutch bank ABN AMRO ranks the worst when it comes to the impact on the environment. This is reflected in a report published today Milieudefensie.

Under the motto "Climate change? Not with my money! Milieudefensie simultaneously start a campaign, where consumers are invited to a climate-friendly bank in question. Milieudefensie calls on banks and their customers to climate-friendly banking via the website "Banks have an enormous impact on climate change. Their investment in fossil fuels provide an emission of 594 million tonnes of the greenhouse gas CO2, more than three times the amount in the Netherlands a year off, "said Donald Pols, campaign manager for Energy and Climate of Milieudefensie. 'Across the 118 billion that banks invest in the production of fossil fuels, is a paltry 6.9 billion euro investment in renewable energy. "The banks themselves but little information on the impact of their investment climate. The report gives Milieudefensie this for the first time a staggering statement.

Customers of environment unfriendly banks can save a lot of CO2 emissions by transferring their money to a bank that performs better. "If a customer of ABN AMRO two thousand euros savings on hevelt to Rabobank, he saves just as much CO2 emissions as if all light bulbs in the house replacing bulbs, 'explains Pols off. "And whom ten thousand euro savings on hevelt of ABN Amro to Triodos Bank or ASN Bank, avoiding even a quantity of CO2 emissions as much as half year when the car is not used."

Via the website consumers can see how much CO2 their bank with their savings caused. Customers can bank on the site mail and package applications for a transition to a climate-friendly bank in question. "We hope that consumers and organizations of these massive opportunities to use," says Pulse.

ASN Bank and Triodos Bank are the most climate-friendly banks in the Netherlands. "Other banks may be an example to take significantly less money to invest in dirty fossil fuels, is Pulse. "There must be much more invested in energy saving and renewable energy. We need all hands on deck to solve the climate problem. Influential parties such as banks have a special responsibility to act quickly and climate-friendly investment. "
