This is the beginning of this fight against the use of ESG scoring to control what we invest in, what businesses we support or what products a company produces. The scores are being used against fossil fuel companies, gun manufacturers and any company that doesn’t agree with the Climate Change, Social Justice and Government control that are currently being forced upon our society. This is how the government forces you to comply. We must fight back!

The big US banks are already using ESG scores. YOU NEED TO CHECK OUT YOUR BANK.


What can you do?


1. Search your bank’s website for ESG and see if you get any results. Check with the Bank’s Corporate site and search for ESG, ESG scores, sustainable investing. If your bank is using ESG scores, move your money to a local bank or credit union that does not use ESG scores and make sure you tell the bank manager why you are leaving.

2. Call your state legislators and ask them to pass laws forbidding banks from using ESG scores to discriminate against their clients.
