Fossil Fuel Divestment
80% of fossil fuel reserves currently being exploited need to remain in the ground if we want to limit global warming to below 2℃ and prevent catastrophic climate change.
Nevertheless, fossil fuel companies put our future in danger by continuing with their coal, oil and gas exploration and destructive business models. This is why we play an active part in the movement to divest from fossil fuels, with our #DivestEurope campaign.
We campaign to defund the industry by getting investors like universities, pension funds and city councils to withdraw their stock shares from fossil fuel companies, and re-invest them in sustainable projects instead.
The divestment movement aims to delegitimise the fossil fuel industry, because as Bill McKibben, the founding father of the divestment movement, puts it: "If it’s wrong to wreck the planet, then it’s wrong to profit from that wreckage."
Join the #DivestEurope campaign to help put a stop to climate change that is being driven by the fossil fuel industry!
