We know that technology based on the use of highly polluting fossil fuels needs to be progressively replaced without delay.” Pope Francis, Laudato Si’ 165
The Laudato Si Movement and Trócaire are calling on members of our global Catholic community to ensure that those responsible for their financial investment portfolios do not continue to invest in the fossil fuel industry. In raising awareness of the negative impact of the fossil fuel industry on our environment and their contribution to global climate change, they are asking Religious Congregations, Orders and Societies who have divested or are in the process of divesting, to please join their next global announcement, just prior to Earth Day on April 22nd.
If you require any information or support on this, the Laudato Si’ Movement and Trócaire are very happy to support you.
You can find out more information and the sign-up form below. This webpage also has a list of institutions who have already divested:
