About the Event
Our fossil fuel divestment group aims to influence Leicestershire and Rutland County Councils and Leicester City Council to stop investing an estimated £154million into fossil fuel companies through the Leicestershire Local Government Pension Scheme (LLGPS), and instead invest in local joint solutions to climate change and fuel poverty such as renewable energy and home insulation. This talk outlines our campaign and the issues around fossil fuel investment and divestment. Or you can watch the 5min speech we gave to the pension committee on 18/11/22 here.
