Environmental Responsible Investment Policy

 

“Chairman - It is generally recognised that burning fossil fuels contribute significantly to global warming, climate change and the decline in the biodiversity of the planet.   If we are to meet the target for climate change mitigation it is imperative that current reserves of fossil fuels remain in the ground; their continued exploitation presents a substantial environmental risk to the survival of the planet for current and future generations.

 

West Lindsey District Council in adopting its Sustainability, Climate and Environmental Strategy has laid out a strong policy to address the threat from continued use of fossil fuels.  However, to ensure successful implementation of replacing fossil fuels with renewable energies and green technologies the Council is asked to commit to the following:

 

1.    Recognise that Fossil Fuel Investments are considered part of the Council’s Carbon Footprint.

2.    To review its investment strategy to create an Environmental Responsible Investment Policy which not only rules out new investments in companies involved in fuels but also divests in such companies.  

3.    Through the above policy to actively seek to invest in companies that reduce greenhouse emissions and minimize climate risk and biodiversity decline.

4.    To work with our Pension Fund Partners to adopt the same criteria to investments as outline in 2 and 3 above.

5.    To actively oppose any new venture to extract fossil fuels ensuring that they remain safely in the ground.

 

I so move.

 

Councillor Stephen Bunney”
