Ask Glasgow & Strathclyde Councillors to support divestment from fossil fuels

Climate change is the greatest threat to our shared home. But the Strathclyde Pension Fund in Glasgow is still investing hundreds of millions in the fossil fuel companies driving climate breakdown. 

Many of these companies are also fracking, a practice effectively banned in Scotland. Their choice to continue to back fossil fuels is gambling away our future. 

The Strathclyde fund is run by Glasgow City Council and is the UK's largest local council pension fund. By divesting from fossil fuels - as Southwark Council, Glasgow University and the City of New York already have - it would send a powerful message and help kick-start Scotland's green economy.

Elected councillors have the power to make this happen, but they need to speak up. They need to know that you care about people affected by climate change and you want them to act to stop these investments. 

Ask your Councillor to pledge their support for a fossil-free future.

The Strathclyde Pension Fund provides pensions for workers of Glasgow City Council, East Ayrshire, North Ayrshire, South Ayrshire, North Lanarkshire, South Lanarkshire, Renfrewshire, East Renfrewshire, Inverclyde, East Dunbartonshire, West Dunbartonshire, Argyll & Bute, and other charities and public bodies.
