WASHINGTON – Goldman Sachs announced Sunday policies to increase restrictions on global coal funding, end direct project funding of Arctic oil and gas projects, while also announcing increased funding of sustainable projects.
Danielle Fugere, President of As You Sow, had this to say about the announcement:
There’s no way around it. No ads. No billionaires. Just the people who believe in this mission and our work.

“We welcome this announcement as an important step in what we hope will be stronger action by Goldman Sachs and other U.S. banks to limit funding of fossil fuel projects and companies. As climate impacts continue to ravage the global economy, banks must take responsibility for their role in funding fossil fuel development that drives global temperature increases. We support Goldman’s leadership.”
