CCPA makes the economic case for divestment

The Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives published a comprehensive report entitled “Pension Funds and Fossil Fuels: The Economic Case for Divestment” in November 2015. Here is an excerpt from the summary:
“This report is aimed at informing pension fund trustees about the risks associated with fossil fuel investments, and for interested workers who want to better understand what their pension money is up to, and how to ask the right questions. Divestment campaigns have become a prime focus for organizing and movement-building on climate change, targeting university endowments, churches, foundations and pension funds. While the movement is primarily driven by a moral imperative — that if it’s wrong to wreck the climate, it’s wrong to profit from that wreckage — there are also important economic arguments for divestment.”
