What is
Divestment?

When you invest your money, you might buy stocks, bonds, or other assets that generate income for you. The Oregon State Treasury invests in the same way.

Most of the funds held by the Treasury are state employee retirement funds (PERS), invested for the long term to be available at the time of an employee’s retirement.

Divestment by the State of Oregon means ending new investment in the fossil fuel industry and phasing out existing fossil fuel investments over time. The money that is currently supporting the fossil fuel industry can be re-invested in a sustainable future for Oregonians.
