Northern Ireland’s councils invest over £300 million in fossil fuel companies. Our councils’ money is fuelling huge fracking projects that are destroying our climate, plundering the lands of indigenous people and destroying communities.
The Local Government Pension Scheme for Northern Ireland has investments in some of the biggest names in Big Oil including BP, Shell and Exxon Mobil. We’ve got to get those in charge to stop investing in fossil fuels.
Can you ask your councillors to back divestment?
All over the world people and organisations are ending their investment in the fossil fuel industry. And it’s starting to hit the industry where it hurts. If we win this campaign, Northern Ireland could make a big contribution to the divestment movement and to global climate action.
Please take action now and ask your councillors to fight for divestment of their pension fund.
