Calling on all of the world's biggest public development banks to shift all their money out of dirty fossil fuels and into sustainable, renewable energy to provide energy access for all.

Tell the World Bank to take urgent action to end all fossil fuel finance and ensure sustainable, clean energy for all.

As World Bank leaders and shareholders meet for the Spring Meetings, join us in demanding that the Bank:

  • ends all finance for fossil fuels including gas,
  • publishes how it will align all finance with the Paris Agreement
  • scales up debt-free finance and policy support for renewable energy to ensure energy access.

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.
