Overview

JPMorgan Chase is the #1 Wall Street funder of tar sands –– one of the dirtiest fossil fuels on the planet. Their investments in the tar sands sector directly result in human rights abuses and environmental disasters.

Answer

At Rainforest Action Network, we know the sure-fire way to challenge corporate power is to follow the money. JPMorgan Chase has financed tar sands with over $3 billion in the past three years. Now they’re financing all four highly controversial proposed tar sands pipelines--Transcanada’s Keystone XL and Energy East; Kinder Morgan’s Trans Mountain and Enbridge’s Line 3.

Despite the lessons learned from the Dakota Access Pipeline and warnings to defund tar sands, JPMorgan Chase has chosen to look the other way. Now, Rainforest Action Network’s campaign goal is to push the biggest bank US banker of tar sands –– JPMorgan Chase –– out of the sector altogether. RAN and our network of allies have been putting pressure on Wall Street banks for over a decade, and we don’t stop until we get results.
