Initiative 3: Divest and Invest
Building on our first two initiatives, if we take Pope Francis’ call to “integral ecology” seriously, we will be sure our investments are shifted out of companies that continue to extract more dirty energy from the earth and pump it into the atmosphere.
After all, if it’s immoral for them to make a profit destabilizing the planet’s climate, creating catastrophic conditions for billions of people, and harming the poor the most … it’s wrong for any of us to be part of their destructive work.
Until recently, it was very difficult for individuals to find funds that are dirty-energy free.
But that is changing. On September 24, we’ll announce a number of ways for you to quickly and conveniently shift your investments to fossil-fuel free funds.
In the meantime, you can make a pledge to divest from dirty energy and invest in socially responsible funds … here.
