What effect do climate protests have on investment banks’ reputations?
alva’s latest analysis reveals the impact of climate protests on investment banks’ reputations in Q4 2021
Through the lens of six major investment banks, alva has examined 3 million+ press, financial analysis and social media data points to reveal how sentiment trends have shifted across this sector, and identified key issues and antagonists driving this reputational change.
Key findings of the report are:
- Fossil fuel finance was the main focus for protests in the UK and US.
- The Extinction Rebellion, Greta Thunberg, Global Witness and Rage for Change are leading voices around climate protests.
- Protest campaigning is likely to continue beyond COP26 following Extinction Rebellion’s rally at Barclays Stirling in December.
