Santander, JP Morgan Chase, NatWest, the Bank of Scotland, Halifax, the Royal Bank of Scotland, Barclays, HSBC and Lloyds Bank all have one thing in common – they will put the money in your savings and current accounts to work funding the fossil fuel industry, despite whatever pledges or Net Zero promises they have made.
