This campaign is launched by a global coalition of organisations that have committed to do what they can to change the Equator Principles. But this campaign will only be succesful if you join us. There are a number of ways for you to do so, listed below. Please return to this page regularly for updates.
Sign the call
We need as many names as possible under the Global Call on this website, both from organizations and individuals, so that banks understand that the whole world is watching their meeting. Use your creativity in getting traffic to this site, and use the outreach tools below.
Join the action days: Divest the Globe
Mazaska Talks, part of the global coalition, is organising Divest the Globe. Three days of mass global action during the Equator Principles Annual Meeting (23-25 October) to call on banks to stop financing climate disasters and respect Indigenous Peoples rights. There are many ways to join Divest the Globe, see here fore more information.
