“In 2019 alone Barclays financed activities linked to biodiversity risk to the tune of over £70 billion.”
“Since the Paris Agreement in 2015 when we signed up to drastically reduce all climate warming activities, what have Barclays done?
“They’ve actually increased investment, by a whopping $145 billion.”
