Mornington Peninsula Shire has partnered with non-profit organisation Market Forces, to deliver a free information session to help you understand how to use your power as an investor or superannuation fund member to take action on climate change and prevent environmental degradation.
Hosting this event is part of our Climate Emergency Plan commitment, to provide education and resources to the local community to help you make informed choices about sustainable banking, investment and divestment.
Superannuation allows Australians the opportunity to retire with a greater level of comfort and security. But what if the super we retire with has been funding the environmental destruction and runaway climate change we need to avoid? What if, by being invested in fossil fuels like coal mining and coal seam gas, our super funds deliver us a polluted world to retire into?
The reality is many of Australia’s superannuation funds are invested in these types of industries.
Join us for this free information session to hear why Market Forces is campaigning for super funds to divest from coal and gas. They’re also here to help Australians make sure their retirement isn’t funded by environmental destruction.
