There has been widespread media coverage following publication of a report from Platform and Friends of the Earth. The report highlights investment of local government pension funds in ‘fossil fuel’ companies and encourages divestment. Information was uploaded to the site UK Divest. The site allowed viewers to send templated letters to Councillors with respect to fossil fuel investments.
The Pension Fund’s response, which covers the background and a response to the three questions that form part of the templated emails being circulated, can be found on this webpage.
Any questions regarding this can be emailed to: PensionInvestments@leics.gov.uk
