Demand Citi executives to stop destroying Amazonia and warming our planet
Out of 160 banks, Citibank is the second highest financier of Amazon oil and gas projects – with over $1.8 billion USD worth of financing. This fossil fuel bank has been steadily creating climate chaos all while publicly agreeing to climate commitments.
Amazonia has already been forced to a tipping point due to forest destruction caused by industrial activities. The Indigenous Peoples of Amazonia are calling for an urgent protection of 80% of the region by 2025. The International Energy Agency (IEA) has already warned that there can be no new fossil fuel projects if the world is to stay within the 1.5°C limit on global warming.
We are calling on Citi to fully exit financing for Amazon oil and gas. As we enter a new era of climate chaos, it is imperative that banks stop financing oil and gas in Amazonia.
ADD YOUR NAME TODAY TO URGE CITI TO STOP FINANCING THE DESTRUCTION OF AMAZONIA AND THE PLANET.

I'm signing on to this petition in solidarity with Indigenous Peoples of Amazonia and their call to protect Amazonia urgently and stop all Amazon oil and gas expansion in the region. This vital region is key for a climate-safe future, keeping in line with the 1.5C goal, and for greater planetary health. I urge Citibanks to exit Amazon oil and gas and be part of the solution.
