To: West Sussex County Council.

Divest West Sussex County Council pension fund from fossil fuel companies.

Divest West Sussex County Council pension fund from fossil fuel companies.

Divest the pension fund from fossil fuel companies and instead invest in renewable energy.

Why is this important?

We are in a climate emergency. The recent NASA report states that February 2016 broke global temperatures by a shocking amount and scientists believe that we may be closer to breaching the 2C warming limit, which was set at the recent Paris summit, than previously thought. Therefore it is imperative that fossil fuels stay in the ground.
