Campaigners' bid to stop council from investing pension fund in fossil fuels
Worthing Climate Action Network has started a petition asking West Sussex County Council to divest the pension fund from fossil fuels.
Currently, the group claimes the county council invests almost £100million in fossil fuels companies.
A spokesman for the group said: “It was agreed at the recent Paris Conference on Climate Change that it is imperative to keep fossil fuels in the ground to prevent breaching the dangerous 2C warming limit.
“Our network see it as both important and achievable that West Sussex County Council contribute to global efforts to limit the effects of climate change.”
