Divest Merseyside Pension Fund: Contact Your Councillor
How money is invested will shape our future, and so it affects all of us.
Yet as the global climate crisis hits hard, with extreme weather and rising sea levels threatening millions of lives, councils across Merseyside continue to invest in the companies most responsible for this damage.
In total, councils across the UK invest over £14 Billion into the fossil fuel industry
The Merseyside Pension Fund, run by Wirral, Liverpool, Knowsley, Sefton & St Helens council for workers in the whole Merseyside region, invests £387 million in fossil fuel companies.
Last year, the Pension Fund started a process of moving some of their money out of the Fossil Fuel sector, and into low carbon. Now we need them to divest the rest.
The Divest Merseyside campaign needs your help to gain Councillors’ support for change.
We all need investors to stop driving the climate crisis and instead work for a just transition towards a fair, renewable future.
Take action now to ask your Councillor to pledge their support for a fossil free future in the Merseyside.
