Inside the August Wilson Center for African American Culture in Pittsburgh the shareholders of PNC bank will hold their annual meeting, April 23. One of the resolutions to be voted on will request that the Board of Directors report on the bank’s exposure to climate change related risks and assess the greenhouse gas emissions resulting from its lending, investing, and financing activities. Outside the Center, on this day after Earth Day, protesters will demand that PNC discontinue its financing of companies that practice mountain top removal. This picture is in contrast to PNC’s adoption of ‘green’ practices for its new commercial buildings.
