Green investments are essential to protect Oregon’s future
The Oregon Treasury manages $120Billion in investments; $90B is in public employee pension funds. Oregon should be at the leading edge of climate-safe investments to support a sustainable future for us all.
The data just keeps accumulating. Fossil fuel investments continue to get a below-market return on investment and they will soon be stranded assets that no one wants to buy.
Fossil fuels cause climate chaos and deadly pollution. All too often pipelines and power plants harm our frontline communities and violate human rights.
Shifting Oregon Treasury holdings from risky fossil fuels to climate-safe investments increases our resiliency as a people and as a state and so we demand:
Immediately: No NEW investments in fossil fuels since they pose a financial, health, and climate risk to Oregonians.
Disclose Oregon Treasury fossil fuel holdings by November 2021 — the start of COP26 (2021 UN Climate Change Conference)
By 2026: Transparently phase out all CURRENT fossil fuel investments and move to climate-safe investments, using a social justice framework.
