Danielle Rowley MP has signed the Divest Parliament pledge, calling on the MP’s pension fund to phase out its substantial investments in fossil fuels.
The pledge asks that the Pension Fund quantifies, reviews and discloses the fund’s investments in carbon-intensive industries, engages in a dialogue with current and former MPs and publicly commits to phasing out fossil fuel investments over an appropriate time-scale.
Ms Rowley was one of 200 cross-party MPs to sign Divest Parliament’s campaign pledge.
Danielle Rowley MP said: “I’m proud to be one of the 200 MPs backing #DivestParliament.
“Urgent action is needed to keep global warming below 1.5 degrees – we must invest in a #FossilFree world powered by clean energy.
