The need for divestment from fossil fuels & real climate action

Fossil fuel investments are losing our public employees’ money, supporting deadly pollution in our communities, and threatening our climate.

Human Rights

Fossil fuel companies are notorious violators of human rights - often building and expanding pipelines, mines, drilling and power plants in the face of community opposition and trampling on Indigenous rights.

Pollution in our Communities

More than 8 million people around the world die each year as a result of breathing polluted air that contains particles from the burning of fossil fuels. That’s in 1 in 5 deaths globally caused by fossil fuel companies and doesn’t include all the other non-lethal health impacts.

Financially Risky

Traditional energy companies have been underperforming the rest of the financial market for years. Bankruptcies are up, particularly amongst coal and fracking companies, and big oil giants like Exxon are floundering. Fossil fuel investments are simply too risky for pension funds.

We are calling for pension funds to divest from fossil fuel companies, the primary drivers of the climate crisis, to drastically increase investments in just and equitable climate solutions and to use their leverage as major shareholders to more successfully engage their investments to take real climate action.
