Fossil fuel divestment toolkit

Divesting from fossil fuels is important.

As Catholics, we’re called to protect creation and all who share it. Divestment from fossil fuels–and reinvestment in clean renewable energy–can go a long way towards protecting our common home from climate change and pollution.

As importantly, every act of divestment is a vote for the clean energy economy. Fossil fuel companies know that their business model requires constant new investments in a diminishing resource–even Shell says that divestment is a “material risk” to its dirty energy bottom line.
