Councillors: don't frack with our pensions

UK local governments invest £9 billion in the fracking industry. Opening up new frontiers of fossil fuels like fracked gas is irresponsible given that a global climate crisis is well underway, with extreme weather and rising sea levels threatening the lives of millions of people. Action is urgently needed, but our councils are still banking on the culprits.

New data has revealed that councils across the UK are investing more than £9 billion in the fracking industry.

Email your councillor now and ask them to support the campaign to divest our council pension funds from fracking companies and all fossil fuels.

Halting the expansion of fossil fuels is a matter of survival for communities around the world – we need to stand in solidarity with them, and fight for climate justice.

It’s time for our councils to divest their pension funds from companies who are driving the climate crisis, and instead work for a just transition towards a fair, renewable future.
