Oil Change International Statement on Departure of World Bank President

January 7, 2019By Alex OrtizFeatured, News, Press Releases

“Under President Kim, the World Bank Group demonstrated a degree of climate leadership by announcing an end to financing for oil and gas extraction, and by starting to tighten its rules on lending to private banks who then invest that money in fossil fuels. The World Bank Group still has a long way to go on climate action, and Kim’s departure should not put a stop to this recent progress.”
