ENVIRONMENT: Costco has a credit card partnership with one of the dirtiest banks in the world. Citi is the second-largest funder of fossil fuels in the world, the largest American funder of coal, and one of the largest funders of projects that violate human rights and Indigenous sovereignty. To move the banks off of fossil fuels, we need some of these companies' biggest clients to demand change. As the third largest retailer in the US, Costco, along with its vast membership base, is a massive client of Citi. That’s where you come in.

Tell Costco to drop dirty Citibank as its credit card issuer, for communities and our climate.

Costco is one of Citi’s largest credit card clients. Citi makes a lot of money from its relationship with Costco, and you know what banks care about? Money. That’s why Costco has the power to either persuade Citi to stop financing fossil fuel expansion or switch to a better credit card company that isn’t wrecking the planet. If Costco threatens to move to a fossil-free credit card provider, Citi can be motivated to clean up its act.

Costco has already made important commitments to having climate-friendly operations, and Costco cares about what its members and potential new shoppers think. If we come together, we can hold Costco accountable, put pressure on them to drop Citi, and push Citi to stop financing fossil fuels!
