Divest from fossil fuels and invest in climate solutions

We’ll only solve climate change by moving quickly from fossil fuels to sustainable energy. Investors face an historic opportunity to capitalize on the transition and help governments meet their climate promises. Find out why investors are choosing to DivestInvest.

  • A moral imperative
    We care about the impacts of climate change, so we believe it is unethical to profit from fossil fuel companies that are not taking meaningful action to reduce global emissions to zero.
  • Financially prudent
    The fossil-fuel era is ending and is being replaced by a sustainable energy economy. Investors risk losing substantial value by holding onto fossil fuels.
  • A legal duty
    Investors have a fiduciary duty to manage climate change financial risks to their portfolios. DivestInvest to help manage the risk.
