Webinar on the Financial Risks of Fossil Fuel Investment

8 February @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

This webinar, aimed at Derbyshire County, Borough, District and Derby City Councillors (though open to anyone), is designed to look at the evidence about the financial risks of fossil fuel investment and answer questions that Councillors may have about the Derbyshire Pension Fund’s continued investment in fossil fuels and possible alternatives. For example,

  • What are the risks of continued investment in fossil fuel companies?
  • Isn’t it better to engage with the companies rather than divesting?
  • Are there alternative investments that can provide equal or better value to fossil fuel companies?
  • Aren’t fossil fuel companies part of the solution?

Carbon Tracker is an independent, non-profit financial thinktank.

The webinar will be chaired by Derbyshire County Councillor Gez Kinsella and is organised by the Derbyshire Pensioners’ Action Group. Following the presentation there will be a Q&A session. More details including how to register here:
