Investing in climate change doesn’t add up….
We’re all connected to institutions that ought to be looking out for the public good. Many of these institutions, however, support the fossil fuel industry through stocks, bonds and investment funds – using our money.
We’re part of a rapidly growing global campaign calling on institutions and companies to divest from fossil fuels and increase investment in renewables. Collectively we’re standing up to say ‘investing in fossil fuels no longer adds up’.
Join the movement to make it happen.
Take action now:
- Tell Westpac to stop financing Bathurst Resources and their plans for coal mining on the Denniston Plateau.
- Send an email to the CEO of the NZ Super Fund asking them to divest.
- Write a letter to Minister for Energy and Resources Simon Bridges telling him to stop government subsidies for fossil fuel companies.
And keep up to date:
In order to keep global warming to 2 degrees Celsius, we can only afford to burn 20% of the coal, oil and gas reserves that companies want to dig up. The other 80% needs to stay in the ground.
The fossil fuel industry could choose to step up and help make the transition to renewables, but instead it’s chosen to continue lobbying for special privileges for new fossil fuel exploration, pressing to see just how much more governments will let them get away with.
As part of the New Zealand and global movement to divest, we have the collective power to reduce financing to fossil fuel companies and we send a clear and urgent message to companies and governments that we are serious about change.
It’s out money, so we’re asking them to divest!
Join the movement to take our money out of fossil fuels!
