What do you know about Divestment from Fossil Fuels


Earlier this month, I moderated the Make a Clean Break webinar with speakers from Trillium Asset Management, Green Century Capital Management and 350_dot_org. The recording and slides are now available on DivestInvestGuide.org. I encourage you to watch and share it with others in your networks.

A few questions came up during the webinar discussion around divesting from banks that finance the sponsor companies of fossil fuel pipelines like Dakota Access, Keystone XL and others.

We didn’t get a chance to address it, and it’s an important and timely topic. So, I wrote a blog article to help clarify where I see banking decisions fitting into fossil fuel divestment as, to date, has been widely understood: Banking and the Evolving Call to Divestment Action.

I hope you find a moment to read and consider the points in this piece.
