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. Phase out 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.
