Cheshire Pension Fund and Fossil Fuel Investments

A number of councillors across Cheshire have received e-mails from local constituents, entitled ‘Our Council’s fossil fuel investments’ inviting comment on the Cheshire Pension Fund’s investments in fossil fuels and its approach to responsible investment. We understand that the e-mail has been made available as an on-line template by Friends of the Earth, who are encouraging local campaigns in support of divestment from fossil fuel assets, under the banner ‘Fossil Free UK’.
The Cheshire Pension Fund’s response to the questions is attached below.
