Divest Brisbane City Council from fossil fuels

Divest Brisbane City Council from fossil fuels

We are calling on Brisbane City Council to realign council money with council values by changing its banking practices. On social, environmental and economic grounds we are asking the Council to only use banks which have committed to be fossil free.

Why is this important?

The Big 4 Bank’s funding of fossil fuel projects is endangering our planet and our future by exacerbating global warming that is already impacting people's lives across the world. There is also significant financial risk associated with investing in fossil fuel projects which are likely to become stranded assets as the world’s energy markets shift away from coal and gas.

Reasons for signing

  • Because i want a carbon neutral world for my grandchildren to grow up in
  • There is no future whatsoever in fossil fuels, and i'd like a future. It's that simple.
  • Other councils are doing it. It is the right thing to do.
