How does fossil fuel divestment help tackle the climate crisis?

It’s simple. We need to keep fossil fuels in the ground to avert a climate crisis. If it’s wrong to wreck the climate, it’s wrong to profit from that wreckage.

It’s time for our institutions to take a stand and divest from fossil fuels.

By doing so we can weaken the fossil fuel industry’s political and economic stranglehold over society.

Every time an institution publicly breaks its ties with fossil fuels, we chip away at the pillars of support that allow the industry to carry out immoral business plans, and we open up space for the right climate solutions to flourish.
