VANGUARD, FIDELITY, SCHWAB: WE WANT FOSSIL-FREE MUTUAL FUNDS.

VANGUARD, FIDELITY, SCHWAB: WE WANT FOSSIL-FREE MUTUAL FUNDS.

Vanguard, Fidelity and Schwab, as leaders in the mutual funds world, you must play a major role in promoting sustainable investment options. Offer broad-based equity funds that minimize climate risk by excluding the 200 largest fossil fuel companies, and make those funds widely available to ordinary investors.

Why is this important?

I want to invest in a livable future for all of us and the generations to come. Continued dependence on fossil fuels is not environmentally sustainable. With the escalation of global warming, it has become clear that it is financially reckless and morally wrong to support business as usual in fossil fuels development.


Reasons for signing

  • cause my mom was being robbed for money.
  • As Bernie said, the debate is over. We have to leave the rest of the carbon in the ground. We need investments that reflect this reality. Sign to encourage your broker to offer investments for the new reality.
  • We are quickly moving to renewable energy. Fossil fuel companies will be the big losers. Just look at all of the coal companies that are declaring bankruptcy.
