The Big Bank Switch
Putting faith into greener banking this Lent…
This Lent, you are invited to join Christians around the UK who are choosing to align their money with their values by switching from a bank that funds planet-destroying fossil fuels to one that doesn’t.
The climate crisis isn’t just happening, it’s being funded – sometimes by those of us who are most concerned about caring for God’s creation, and all because we have a bank account with HSBC, Barclays, Santander, NatWest, Chase, Lloyds or another high street bank.
You can join The Big Bank Switch by making a Fossil Free Pledge using the form on the right. By pledging, you commit to taking meaningful action against harmful fossil fuel-funding by switching your bank account to a green bank during our switch week in late April. Once you’ve made the pledge we’ll be back in touch with you soon. We have all the resources you’ll need to ensure a quick and easy switch, including recommendations of trusted green banks from our partners at Switch It Green. These recommendations should not be considered as financial advice.
I have a deep concern for our global and local community because of my faith, and so could no longer use a bank which didn’t also respect this, or caused intentional harm to others.
Phoebe Edmonds, Quaker
