In 2021, UK Divest revealed councils were investing a whopping £10bn in climate-wrecking fossil fuel companies through their pension funds.
This October, we’ll be releasing updated data that uncovers how much our local authorities are investing in fossil fuels and the impact of these polluted pensions on our planet.
With wildfires, record temperatures and devastating flooding around the world, it’s never been more urgent for us to cut ties with the fossil fuel companies that are fuelling the climate crisis.
- UK Divest will provide an overview of the new research, revealing which funds are most heavily invested in fossil fuels and highlighting particularly harmful projects supported by UK council pension funds.
- Hear from an international activist on the frontlines of a fossil fuel project propped up by our pensions.
- Find out what YOU can do to get your council to divest from crisis and invest in a fossil-free future.
This event is for everyone, but if you are a local council taxpayer, local authority worker, or in receipt of a local government pension you’ll definitely not want to miss out!
