Fossil Free Finance

The Fossil Free Finance Campaign (FFFC) was formed in 2019. We aim to foster shared learning, coordination, and collaboration among NGOs dedicated to ending financial services to the fossil fuel industry.

We want to enable a shift towards people-centered sustainable energy systems as a key strategy to ensuring that global warming stays under 1.5°C.

We encourage strategic discussions to build alignment on efforts across both public and private finance; across different fossil fuel sectors including coal, oil and gas; and across national, regional and global campaigns.

| Our vision

We envision a financial sector that works for the climate and communities, and enables a rapid and fair phase down of fossil fuels in line with 1.5 C pathways.

| Our mission

Strengthen the effectiveness of research, policy analysis and campaigns against fossil fuel finance.

| Our work

We foster discussion, coordination, collaboration and learning. We provide support to fossil free finance movements globally.

| Capacity Building

Our Finance Campaigner School helps to train new fossil finance activists around the world and to support them as they develop their own campaigns. In weekly sessions, we delve deeper into the financial system and talk about strategies for moving money away from dirty corporations. The program runs from March through October each year. Contact us for more information. 

We also organize webinars and workshops on private and public fiinance campaigning and how to use our tools.
