Divest Pension from Oil and Gas
Over 50% of all money in the world is held in pensions. Which institution we decide to place our pension with, significantly affects our journey to being net positive. Most of us are tied into our workplace pension scheme, which is either placed in a private pension or a company pension. If you have a private pension you can move the pension to an ethical alternative, either using a financial advisor or by finding a scheme to move to which you administer yourself - this can be done in a year. If you have a company pension you can influence where the investments are made by creating a lobby in your workplace to ask for the pension to divest investments in oil and gas (like you might tobacco or slavery) and invest in ESG or impact funds. The outcome of such a lobby can be achieved in three to five years. Either way there is a route to moving your pension investment - so why not pledge today.
