Description

Description DivestInvest is a diverse, global network of individuals and organizations united in the belief that by using our collective influence as investors to divest from fossil fuels, and invest in climate solutions, we can accelerate the transition to a zero-carbon economy. In this way, we are supporting the agreement made by governments in Paris at COP21 and protecting our own investment returns.

In addition to shifting their own capital, some investors and investment advisers now provide additional support to help others make this important shift.

Objectives First, to accelerate the energy transition and support the delivery of the Paris Agreement by shifting the trillions of dollars away from fossil fuel energy to sustainable energy and other climate solutions. In line with the UN’s analysis, our target is for $12 trillion to be moved by 2040.

Second, to embolden politicians to take stronger action on climate change.

Activities DivestInvest involves investors shifting capital out of fossil fuels and towards climate solutions.

DivestInvest also provides support for new investors to make the shift. Primarily through resources online and peer to peer engagement.
