FOSSIL FUEL DIVESTMENT NEWS; The Archdiocese of Birmingham has divested from companies which extract fossil fuels with immediate effect, cementing its commitment to action in the climate  emergency. 

The Archdiocese has changed its policy to exclude investments in any company which derives more than 5% of its revenues from fossil fuels and is joining the ranks of all those who have committed to  attaining net zero carbon emissions by 2030. Divestment in fossil fuels is one of the first steps of  many which we will take to ensure that we will not fund the industries which destroy God’s creation  and impact the poor. 

We are pleased to be part of the global divestment announcement to be made by the World Council  of Churches, the Laudato Si’ Movement, Operation Noah, Green Anglicans and GreenFaith on  October 25, joining four Catholic dioceses and many other faith organisations from around the world  who have announced their commitment to ethical investment.

Climate Action Meeting: 16th September 7-9pm (online)

Join us in combatting climate change. We have great strength and passion in our network, and we want to ask you to help us find ways to address the climate emergency together and to respond to Pope Francis’ call for an ecological conversion. The Archdiocese is increasing its conversion to green energy, and has committed to ethical investment. Parishes and schools have taken part in CAFOD Live Simply Awards. We are proud of this work, but we want to do more and to reach more people. 

You are invited to join our initial open meeting, via Zoom, in which we will talk about the work we have done and what we wish to do, and where we will invite you to feedback, share your stories or simply add your support.
