Right now, Vanguard International and Simplicity KiwiSaver are listening. They want to do what New Zealanders think is the ethical thing.We know that a fund can't be ethical while it has fossil fuels in it. Let's let them know where we stand.
Kiwis are concerned about our KiwiSaver funds being invested indirectly in companies that make cluster bombs, anti-personnel mines and nuclear weapons. Vanguard International is looking for alternatives to offer here, and willing to create a new ethical fund just for New Zealanders.
Simplicity, the new non-profit Kiwisaver plan, can get Vanguard to exclude fossil fuels from this fund too. Vanguard International funds are the basis for Simplicity's Kiwisaver plan, and the two companies are in discussions about what an ethical fund would involve.
Kiwisaver exists for Kiwis to invest in our futures. The fossil fuel industry is on track to make the future unliveable - unless we stop it. And here's one opportunity to block them!
Let's show Simplicity that there is huge support to make this fund fossil free, so that New Zealanders can make smart decisions with their money.
