Featured Group: Fossil Free North Yorkshire

Fossil Free North Yorkshire is a new campaigning group targeting North Yorkshire County Council Pension Fund to persuade it to divest from fossil fuels. Climate change is the biggest threat North Yorkshire and the world faces. We now have under 10 years to ensure that global temperature increases remain below 1.5⁰C before unprecedented, irreversible damage occurs Despite this, North Yorkshire pension fund currently holds £60m+ worth of fossil fuel investments

We are calling for the divestment of these assets and the subsequent re-investment into a new local green infrastructure investment fund. This will help finance the low carbon transition across Yorkshire, creating jobs and boosting the local economy in the process If not much of this makes sense then don’t worry! Over the next couple of months we’ll be explaining everything through a series of easy to understand posts.
