Divestment Toolkit for Local Governments

Report: Divestment for Local Governments

Despite global warnings, many governments and financial institutions still invest trillions in fossil fuels, the primary contributor to the climate crisis. However, 1,596 institutions worth $40.51 trillion worldwide are already divesting and local governments have the opportunity to lead by removing public funds from fossil fuels.

Dollars to Decarbonization is a toolkit that provides an easy-to-understand fossil fuel divestment blueprint for local governments. The toolkit guides readers through clear, step-by-step actions across four areas: pensions, insurance, banking, and direct divestment, with research, real cases, and policy templates.

Access the toolkit by clicking on the image below and start the journey to decarbonize your government’s finances:
