Sign up to the Divestment South Africa mailing list to get updates on the campaign and to get connected with divestment in your area!
Divestment is the opposite of an investment – it simply means getting rid of stocks, bonds, or investment funds that are unethical or morally ambiguous.
When you invest your money, you might buy stocks, bonds, or other investments that generate income for you. Universities, religious organisations, retirement funds, and other institutions put billions in these same kinds of investments to generate income to help them run. Fossil fuel investments are a risk for both investors and the planet, so we’re calling on institutions to divest from these companies.
We'll keep you in the loop and help you link up with other activists where you are. Together we can build a powerful movement taking on the fossil fuel investments of our local councils - get involved!
