Banks bankrolling coal: spotlight moves on to Lloyds Banking Group

Signpost 4 June 2014

We braved the weekend rain at the weekend to run our Carbon Capital/ UK Frack Free stall in the Market Place. It was great to be joined again by Bradford WDM and there was a lot of interest in our signpost indicating the distances to various mega coal projects financed by UK banks.

Thank you to everyone who signed a postcard for Lloyds Bank. A copy of your postcards was delivered to the local Lloyds branch along with 41 pieces of coal – representing the taxpayers’ 41% stake in Lloyds. Another will be sent to the World Development Movement to present to Lloyds nationally. We’ll also post off your postcard to Ed Davey on coal finance.
