Divestment is the opposite of investment–it simply means getting rid of stocks, bonds or investment funds that are unethical or morally objectionable, particularly fossil fuel investments which are a risk for investors and for the planet. We are calling on institutions to divest from the 200 publicly-traded companies that hold the vast majority of listed coal, oil and gas reserves. We also support a socially just transition to a future that invests in jobs and infrastructure to build an economy based on renewable clean energy.
Here’s a great video explaining the campaign in more detail:
Initiated as a major campaign of 350.org in 2012, Fossil-fuel Divestment has been one of the organization’s most powerful and effective efforts. In a few short years, it’s made remarkable progress toward its long term goal of changing how trillions of dollars in public and private funds are spent on energy development; it’s accelerating the urgently needed transition away from our suicidal fossil fuel-based economy, toward a sustainable economy built on renewable energy sources.
