What do you know about your bank? For most people, it’s just the big building where their money is kept. But where we keep our money matters and what happens to our money beyond those building’s walls has a global impact.
Write to your bank, asking them for their ethical banking policy so that you can make decisions on how your money is used. Copy and paste this letter, edit it and add in your own details. You can find the appropriate branch address on the bank’s website.

Dear Sirs or Madams,
I am writing to you today regarding your ethical policy. This is something I have recently
been inspired to research. I would really appreciate it if you could send me a copy of
your ethical policy to further my knowledge of how [name of bank] operates in the wider
I want to support an ethical bank that does not just invest in whichever businesses or
industries will provide the biggest return, but that shows a commitment to investing
ethically, in small businesses and in honest governments.
I am very interested to see how and where you are investing and whether this is
something I want to continue to support with my own finances.
I look forward to hearing from you.
