Stop our council funding climate change.

Stop our council funding climate change.

Instruct the administrators for the Gloucestershire Local Government Pension Scheme to divest from (sell all shares in) all companies who profit from the extraction of fossil fuels.

Why is this important?

a) fossil fuel companies are driving the climate crisis. It is morally unacceptable that public money should be invested in them

b) divestment sends a clear message to governments and to the companies themselves that fossil fuels will no longer be allowed to continue polluting our world and destroying the health and environment of all its peoples

c) divestment would protect the fund from the well-documented risk of falling share value.
