Fossil Free NI is a campaign aiming to get the biggest public pension fund in NI to divest from fossil fuels. Currently this fund, managed by NILGOSC, has £317million invested in fossil fuels. Fossil Free NI is part of the global divestment movement, calling for climate justice, which has already succeeded in getting over 1000 institutions to divest $11.5 trilion. There are currently three local groups, Fossil Free South Down, North Down and Belfast. The campaign has been successful in getting four council areas to pass motions supporting our call for NILGOSC to divest.
