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
