As a bank customer, a super fund member or a shareholder you could be investing in companies that are expanding fossil fuels and is fuelling the climate crisis. But you also have an opportunity to change bank policy for the better and ensure your money is used as a force for good.

Your teachers Rachel and Morgan are from Market Forces, an environmental advocacy project who believe that the banks, superannuation funds and governments that have custody of our money should use it to protect, not damage, our environment.

This class welcomes everyone to get to know their financial institutions and who they invest in, and how we can play an important part in shifting banks towards our values as customers.

What will we cover?

In this in-person class we’ll cover

  •  What to look out for when choosing your financial institutions, including who and what they invest in on your behalf
  • How to have a say in what your financial institutions invest in, such as through AGMs
  • Some existing campaigns and what/why/who is targeted
  • Tools on how to check in on your institution
  • Q&A time!

Market Forces is an environmental advocacy project that focuses on
financial institutions, and is not a financial adviser and does not
make recommendations on where people should put their money. Rather, it publishes information on which financial institutions are
invested in or exposed to environmentally damaging activities and put
people in a position to make up their own minds.

The information provided is factual information, and not general or personal advice. People should should seek independent financial advice before making a decision in respect of their money.
