DivestSurrey

Remove all investments in oil, gas and coal.

Why is this important?

Right now the Surrey Pension Fund has around £90 million invested directly in climate wrecking fossil fuels despite the efforts of our DivestSurrey campaign and many similar campaign groups across Surrey to persuade them to divest.

Thousands of people across the country are asking why local authority pension funds such as ours in Surrey deem it acceptable to fund companies like BP who have a committed £41 billion looking for new fossil fuel reserves over the next decade. It is absolutely senseless!

Help us persuade the Surrey Pension Fund to remove these investments by signing up to our campaign.

Many thanks

Reasons for signing

  • Because SCC need to put their policies where their mouth is, they have declared a climate change emergency so must divest from fossil fuels
  • Stop with the tinkering and procrastinating - divest and support clean energy right now. Science says we must, technology says we can.
  • “Why are you trying to save the planet?” “Because I’m one of the idiots that lives on it!”
