So what does Chase have to do with tar sands?
While there are many banks financing these dirty tar sands pipelines, JPMorgan Chase is especially entangled here in the United States. JPMorgan Chase (JPMC) has participated in 11 of the 18 current *lines of credit to the three pipeline companies. Not only that, JPMorgan Chase acted as a *lead agent in 3 of those deals. Lead agent banks play a crucial role in making these loans happen. They essentially use their size, power, and influence to help ensure the deal is a success.
While all fossil fuel pipelines are a threat to the climate and our communities, Chase is currently funding the Kinder Morgan Trans Mountain Pipeline. This pipeline that will run through the Northwest and impact all of it’s residents.
