Remove all investments in oil, gas and coal and re-direct these funds into assets that have a positive impact beyond the legal obligation to maximise returns for pension members.

Why is this important?

The Surrey Pension Fund has over £130 million invested in fossil fuels.

The simple fact is this. You can be in favour of massive continued support of the oil industry or you can be in favour of preventing the systematic destruction of our ecosystems. But you can't do both.

French president Macron recently said during his trip to meet Donald Trump, “What is the meaning of life if we are destroying the planet while sacrificing the future of our children”. “Let’s face it there is no planet B”

Unless we think that trashing our own planet and passing that problem on to our children and grandchildren is a good idea, then we would ask you to add your name to our petition and make your voice heard.

Many thanks

Reasons for signing

  • For my grandchildren
  • Surely it a no-brainer? As in, I want my pension contributions to fund a sustainable future rather than ecological catastrophe!
  • I've got 2 young grand children. They're not going to thank this generation for wrecking the environment.
