Fossil free Wandsworth

50 of 100 signatures


The science is clear, as Lord May, the UK government's former chief scientist says:

"We have to leave more of the fossil fuel that has sequestered over millenia in the ground. If we continue to extract it unremittingly, there's no doubt that we are not going to be able to stay within any plausible envelope of a habitable earth."

Major funds have already started divesting from fossil fuels. We believe that not only is this the right thing to do for our environment but also makes a lot of sense financially. Action is needed at all levels of society, and the time to act is now.

Let's make Fossil free Wandsworth happen!

We, the undersigned, call on Wandsworth Council to review its financial investment portfolio with particular reference to the financial and environmental risks of the positions the council and its agents hold in businesses dependent on the fossil fuel industry. The findings of the review should be published and acted upon.
