BNP Paribas is a French multinational bank and financial services company and one of the largest banks in the world.
Based on 2012 information, Bloomberg and Forbes ranked BNP Paribas the third-largest bank in the world by total assets. They have $444,558,456 invested in the Dakota Access Pipeline.
The pipeline will cost $3.8 billion, and $3.75 billion of that budget is on credit, loaned or invested by financial institutions. And the consumer banks lending the money are using a portion of the money you have saved with them.
If you have an account with one of this bank, that means your money is funding the pipeline. Pull your money from BNP Paribas if they don’t agree to divest.
BREAKING: On April 6, 2017, BNP Paribas sold it's remaining financing portfolio to the project worth $120 million, making it the fourth major bank to divest from the Dakota Access Pipeline project.
