FOSSIL FREE AHK

FOSSIL FREE AHK

· To officially announce that AHK is free of financial associations to fossil fuels.

· To inform Deutsche Bank of this policy and to close the AHK account at Deutsche Bank.

· Do AHKs banking through a fossil free bank

· To check if AHK has any fossil fuel related financial holdings and if so to divest away from them and to release details of AHK’s financial investments publicly.

Why is this important?

If it is wrong to wreck the climate, then it is wrong to profit from that wreckage. We believe that educational and religious institutions, city and state governments, and other institutions that serve the public good should divest from fossil fuels.
We want institutions to immediately freeze any new investment in fossil fuel companies, and divest from direct ownership and any commingled funds that include fossil fuel public equities and corporate bonds. To make people aware of this situation, that lot of institutions are involved indirectly in fossil fuel investments.
