Divest Derbyshire

Please sign this petition (of which Transition New Mills is a named supporter) to urge Derbyshire County Council to divest from fossil fuels and join the new zeitgeist…

Derbyshire County Council Pension Fund has £290 million invested in fossil fuel industries, including Royal Dutch Shell, BP and Rio Tinto. Fossil fuel industries make up nearly 6% of the pension fund.

The petition calls on DCC to immediately freeze any new investments in fossil fuels and divest from direct ownership and any commingled funds that include fossil fuel public equities and corporate bonds within 5 years.
