Divest Superannuation workshop
The single most effective step the average person can take to lower their carbon footprint is to switch to a super fund that attempts to avoid investments in fossil fuel intensive industries.
This event is part of the ARRCC Align Your Finances with Your Faith to Protect the Planet series in which participants share, learn and discuss within a multifaith group issues surrounding aligning your finances and faith to protect the planet by divesting from fossil fuels.
The session considers how to get your Superannuation fund to stop funding the fossil fuel industry.
7.30 - 9pm AEDT ACT/NSW/Tas/Vic, starting 7pm SA, 6.30pm Qld, 6pm NT, 5:30pm WA
There is much work we can do to ensure that our superannuation companies are divesting from fossil fuel industries, and investing into renewable sources on the path to a reducing emissions.
A recent participant said:
“I looked into one of my super funds ... and found it rates very badly in terms of fossil fuel investment. I am now thinking about what to do about it”
For someone with a modest amount in super savings, the impact of divesting super compared to other efforts to reduce carbon footprint.
