Worship in Action:
Quaker Earthcare Witness is supporting Earth Quaker Action Team (EQAT)’s Vanguard S.O.S. campaign to pressure the Vanguard Investments Group to divest from fossil fuels. Vanguard is the world’s biggest investor in coal and one of the two biggest investors in gas and oil.
“Shifting finance has emerged as a key strategy in the global effort to transition from fossil fuels to clean energy. Policies adopted by financial institutions to limit support for fossil fuels are having a direct impact in the real economy, driving up the cost of capital and shifting the cost/benefit equation for new projects. To a significant extent, the availability and cost of finance and other financial services will determine whether the pipeline of new fossil fuel projects is built and how quickly existing infrastructure is retired.” Sunrise Project
