Take Action

World Bank President, David Malpass recently refused to confirm that he accepts climate science.

While President Malpass has attempted to walk back his remarks, the Bank's track record of a lack of climate action under his leadership speaks for itself.

Sign the public statement of no confidence in President David Malpass

Our demands

Multilateral Development Banks (MDBs) such as the World Bank manage billions of dollars of public money. They are key to financing the shift to a sustainable, renewable global energy system.

Multilateral Development Banks must:

  1. End all direct and indirect finance to fossil fuels and promote a just transition.
  2. Significantly scale up investment in sustainable renewable energy and ensure everyone has access to clean, safe energy.
  3. Include strong environmental, social and governance safeguards relating to fossil fuels and renewable energy.
  4. Be transparent and accountable about direct and indirect energy finance and in measuring emissions from the projects they fund.
