In 2021, we published our Declaration of Climate and Ecological Emergency.
As part of this declaration, we made the decision to cease all remaining financial investments in fossil fuels as soon as possible and by the end of 2022 at the latest.
We’re pleased to announce that we’re currently ‘ahead’ of this deadline.
Rick Russell, RPS Director of Operations, said: “We are very pleased to have fully disinvested from fossil fuels with the Society's major investment fund, which is over 80 per cent of our investment portfolio.
“We are also working very closely with our much smaller investment fund to exclude fossil fuels. They are introducing new funds which comply with our declaration and those funds are currently going through the regulatory approval process, which is time consuming.
“At this point in time, we are pleased to say that we are still working ahead of our stated disinvestment deadline.”
