The parent company of FHB is BNP Paribus -- a major investor in the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL). Trump's executive order advancing fossil fuel infrastructure at the expense of renewable energy has placed DAPL on the front lines of climate change and environmental justice.
Join us in standing in solidarity with the Standing Rock Sioux and fighting back against Trump in light of the Executive Orders he issued on January 24, 2017 to move forward the Dakota Access and Keystone XL pipelines and fast track the Environmental Impact Statement issued by the Obama Administration.
In November 2016, we rallied and demanded that First Hawaiian Bank pressure their principle shareholder, BNP Paribas, to pull its investment from DAPL. FHB has not taken any steps toward divesting from DAPL and other fossil fuel infrastructure. In response, dozens of individuals and organizations have withrawn their funds and closed their accounts at FHB totalling at over $1.6 million.
