Why should the Gates Foundation Divest? Download our report for the entire argument.
This report has been drawn up to make the case for fossil fuel divestment as an efficacious strategy in helping us stay below the internationally agreed upon 450ppm/2°C target. We also wish to argue that the Gates Foundation is well-positioned to play an especially important role within the divestment strategy. As such, we hope to encourage the Foundation to reconsider the opinion recently expressed by Bill Gates that there is no direct link between divestment from fossil fuels and solving the problem of global climate change.
