LSESU's bank invests in Arms/Fossil-fuels

Hello, my name is Taeyang, which means Sun in Korean.

LSESU currently uses NatWest that invests in arms, fossil fuels and other industries neglecting human/animal rights: Natwest is currently bottom-ranked in most of the online ethical-banking tables (check https://thegoodshoppingguide.com/subject/ethical-banks-building-societies%e2%80%8d%e2%80%8d%e2%80%8d/)

 

If I am elected, I will end it:

By initialising a campaign motion and meetings with the Trustees & Democracy Committee to switch to Triodos Bank, which takes the environment, human/animal rights into its investment consideration.

• Elected Chair of KCLSU Ethics & Sustainability Committee for 2 years (2017~2019): Phasing-out palm-oil campaign

• Student Member of Fairtrade and Sustainable Food Steering Group, KCL (2018)
