TOWER HAMLETS COUNCIL INVESTING £92 MILLION IN FOSSIL FUELS
National data released today (09 November 2017) has revealed that Tower Hamlets Council has approximately £92 million invested in the fossil fuel industry through its management of the Council pension fund.
Campaigners from Tower Hamlets Divest say the controversial investments threaten the climate and represent an unacceptable financial risk to pension beneficiaries. They are urgently calling on the Council Pensions Committee to divest the pension fund, which its professional legal and financial advisers have indicated it is fully able to do.
