Join the call for Catholic leaders and institutions to divest from fossil fuels

The movement to divest from fossil fuels always hinged on a fundamentally moral argument: Climate change is unjust, so investing it its causes is unjust.

Pope Francis is crystal clear that the current development model based on the use of coal, oil and gas, must end. In its place we need renewable energy and new modes of production and consumption that combat global warming.

All over the world Catholics are uniting to call on their local institutions to take a moral stand for climate justice and divest from fossil fuels. In doing so they are building momentum for Pope Francis to follow up his powerful words with decisive action and divest the Vatican from fossil fuels.

  • Divest Archdiocese of Chicago From Fossil Fuels
    If it is wrong to wreck the planet, then it is also wrong to profit from that wreckage. The movement to divest from fossil fuels has always hinged on a fundamentally moral argument: Investment in the fossil fuel industry is wrong. Climate change is unjust. These are precepts that Christians and non-Christians alike can agree on. In the past two years, hundreds of universities, cities, and faith communities have rallied around the idea of fossil fuel divestment, calling on institutions to align their investments with their moral principles and send a clear symbolic message: The actions of this industry are incompatible with a livable planet, and we are taking a stand against it. If the goal of Cardinal Cupich's "Renew My Church" initiative is to make Chicagoland parishes more vital and sustainable, then divestment from fossil fuels must be included in the conversation and action plans.
