Greenwash Alert: Royal Bank of Scotland’s Coal Financing and Climate Week

posted by

Dirty Money: Corporate Greenwashing and RBS Coal FinanceOur good friends and allies at Platform, a London-based research group, released a new report earlier this week outlining the Royal Bank of Scotland’s (RBS) extensive investments in the coal industry.

Ironically, the day of release also marked the first day of the RBS-sponsored Climate Week in the UK.

Platform is using RBS’s involvement in Climate Week to push the bank to stop greenwashing its corporate image by sponsoring climate-related events and, instead, to get serious about reducing its financing of the fossil fuels industry.
