Great news earlier this week when the Berlin Doctor’s Pension Fund, Berliner Ärzteversorgung (BÄV), announced it was divesting from all companies generating more than 25% of their turnover from coal mining or basing more than 25% of their energy production on coal. This will affect 40 companies of the €7bn fund.

A group of BÄV member doctors have been campaigning towards this goal for the past two years and will take their divestment campaign forward to include oil and gas companies as well as other enterprises connected to coal-production.

We’re excited to see what funds will follow in these steps next.
