JPMorgan Chase announced Monday it will stop providing financial services to companies pursuing oil and gas exploitation in the Arctic and phase out loans to the coal industry. JPMorgan will, however, still finance oil and gas projects outside of the Arctic region. The announcement comes just days after a leaked report by JPMorgan warned the planet is facing irreversible damage due to the worsening climate crisis. The bank is one of the biggest financial backers of the fossil fuel industry and other leading polluters.
