据英国卫报2020年3月30日报道,巴克莱因其气候记录而屈服于投资者的压力,并宣布计划到2050年将碳足迹减少至净零。根据雨林行动网络(Rainforest Action Network)最近的一份报告,巴克莱银行在过去四年中一直是欧洲最大的化石燃料融资商,并且是全球第七大融资商。
Bank pledges to align all of its financing activities with goals of Paris climate agreement. Barclays has been the top European financier of fossil fuels in the last four years and is the seventh largest globally, according to a recent report by the Rainforest Action Network.Barclays has bowed to investor pressure over its climate track record and announced plans to shrink its carbon footprint to net zero by 2050. 
该银行总部位于伦敦,已承诺将其所有金融活动与《巴黎协定》的目标和时间表保持一致,从能源和电力部门开始,并发布“透明目标”以跟踪其进展。
The bank, which has its headquarters in London, has pledged to align all of its financing activities with the goals and timelines of the Paris agreement, starting with the energy and power sectors, and to publish “transparent targets” to track its progress.
该提案将在5月7日的年度股东大会上进行表决,是对另一项股东决议的回应的一部分,该决议敦促该银行逐步淘汰对未能与巴黎协定气候目标保持一致的,对能源和化石燃料公司的所有贷款和服务。
The proposal will be put to an investor vote at its annual general meeting on 7 May and is part of the response to a separate shareholder resolution urging the bank to phase out all lending and services to energy and fossil fuel companies that fail to align with Paris climate goals.
