Big Shift Global

Take Action

Call for a Big Shift from fossil fuels to renewable energy!

This Spring, tell the World Bank to make the Big Shift

The World Bank says it supports the Paris Agreement to limit global warming and the UN Sustainable Development Goal of universal energy access for all by 2030. However, the World Bank is not doing enough to support these goals.  

At the World Bank meetings taking place in April 2019, we are calling on the World Bank to align its lending and operations with the 1.5°C target by adopting science-based emissions targets for its lending, ending all investment in fossil fuels, and to increase its financing for distributed renewable energy projects that will provide clean energy for the poorest as soon as possible. 

Take action

Email your national Executive Director at the World Bank and ask them to commit to aligning the World Bank’s investments with the Paris Agreement 1.5°C pathway and to scaling up support for clean energy access.
