Scottish money is fuelling the climate crisis.

Divestment is about freeing our communities, institutions and government from the power of fossil fuel polluters.

Grassroots campaigning around the world has led to thousands of organisations worth trillions of pound committing to divest from fossil fuels. In Scotland twelve organisations have committed to go fossil free.

This is a great start but there’s much more to do to. Take action on divestment and help us ensure Scotland’s future is fossil free.

Local councils invest £1.2 billion in fossil fuels

Towards fossil free local government

The majority of Scotland’s local councils have declared a climate emergency, but all still invest climate polluters through their pension funds. Concerted action from politicians, pension fund members and communities can make the change for divestment.
