Derbyshire County Council should divest in fossil fuels
Councils up and down the country are “divesting” their assets from fossil fuel companies. In practice this means that they are moving their sizable pension fund investments away from companies which trade in oil and gas and investing in greener companies. Measures are put place to make sure this transition does not affect the existing and future pensions of staff.
We’re calling for Derbyshire County Council to go further than it has and divest its assets in fossil fuels, and we’re calling on Amber Valley Borough Council to use what pressure it can on Derbyshire CC over the issue.
