Petition Ask that the States of Jersey divest from the top 200 fossil fuel companies
The States of Jersey Common Investment Fund (CIF) manages the public funds of Islanders. It manages nearly £3 billion worth of assets, millions of which are directly invested in fossil fuel companies including BHP Billiton, ExxonMobil, BP, Rio Tinto and Shell.
By divesting from fossil fuels, the States of Jersey will join New York City and public institutions such as the British Medical Association, Glasgow University and Oxford City Council, amongst many others, in leading by example to help create a sustainable future for the citizens of Jersey and beyond.
