Christian Responses to the Climate Emergency

Session 5: Divestment

Small Group Discussion A

  1. Is it ethical to invest in fossil fuel companies?
  2. If you were responsible for managing £100 million of Church investments, would you divest (disinvest) from fossil fuels or continue investing in fossil fuel companies and seek to engage with them as a shareholder?

Small Group Discussion B

  1. Where do you think campaigning would have the greatest impact in your Church?
  2. What do you think are the barriers you would face to getting your Church to divest, and how would you overcome them?
