Did you know that 100 deaths a year in St.Albans are caused by air pollution?

Did you know that vulnerable people like children are particularly at risk?

We want to do something about it - do you?

We are asking Hertfordshire County Council to divest from fossil fuel investments! Please sign our petition here. It only takes a moment.

Hertfordshire County Council Pension Fund has £129,078,000 invested in Fossil Fuel industries,including BG Group PLC, Royal Dutch Shell PLC and Rio Tinto PLC.
Fossil fuel industries make up 3.71% of the pension fund.

Herts County Council has carbon emission reduction targets while continuing to invest in fossil fuel companies, which increase emissions across the UK and globally.

We need national and local investment in renewable energy companies and infrastructure and we need major institutions including local government to divest from fossil fuels

Find out more on the Divest Herts website

What are we asking Hertfordshire County Council to do?

Immediately freeze any new investments in fossil fuels

Divest from direct ownership and any commingled funds that include fossil fuel public equities and corporate bonds within 5 years



How can schools help? For lots of information and ideas take a look at our Schools Page - including details on making your own bug hotel.


We're looking for more schools who would like to become more bee friendly. We can help you transform a small piece of land near their school into a flower rich wonderland for bees, bugs and humans to enjoy, or to build a bee and bug hotel using recycled materials.

Is your school up for it? Get in touch at stalbansfoe@hotmail.com
