Faith Groups Announce Fossil Fuel Divestment 

Thirty-five faith groups spanning seven countries have announced plans to divest from 20 oil and gas companies. The decision was prompted by an investigation published by The Guardian earlier this year, which revealed “carbon bombs’ set to trigger catastrophic climate breakdown”, with 20 oil and gas majors continuing with fossil fuel expansion plans totalling US$932 billion. The faith groups are being led by the World Council of Churches, Operation Noah, Laudato Si’ Movement, Green Anglicans and GreenDaith. Faith institutions represent more than 35% of global fossil fuels divestment commitments. Eamon Martin, the Archbishop of Armagh, said: “It is clear that many members of our congregations, especially our young people, feel we have a responsibility to take action with regard to the challenges of climate change and climate justice. We all share responsibility for the problems facing our world, but equally, we share responsibility for finding the solutions. Each one of us must accept our personal and collective need to change and make sacrifices, recognising the inherent issues of justice and fairness that are involved.”
