Go Fossil Free!

Free Your KiwiSaver Fund From Fossil Fuel Investment

$1.15 billion of KiwiSaver money is invested in companies involved in fossil fuel extraction and production. If you don’t want your money to be part of it, switch to one of the funds listed below and join the global divestment movement.

Divesting away from fossil fuels and carbon-intensive companies and instead towards climate solutions is gaining momentum. The global divestment campaign has seen institutions (such as Auckland and Dunedin Councils, Otago and Victoria Universities, Anglican Church), countries (like Ireland) and investment funds go fossil free. As at the end of 2019, $12 trillion of investment funds have been divested worldwide. The campaign is not only de-legitimising the fossil fuel industry, it is speeding up the phase out of coal and oil and gas. Join the NZ campaign, 350 Aotearoa.

It’s not only a sound moral decision to help stop greenhouse gas emissions to avoid climate catastrophe, but a sound financial decision – up to 80% of fossil fuel reserves are at risk from becoming stranded assets, with little value as fossil fuels are phased out. Authoritative research shows that divestment from fossil fuels in recent decades has not resulted in lower returns, and there are compelling reasons for divesting now.  Going fossil free is good for you and good for the future of our planet. We have recently shown the evidence of a huge financial loss experienced by investors in the coal, oil and gas sectors.

Now you can go fossil free with your KiwiSaver portfolio! The funds below all have a fossil free policy. Our research has found that some of the funds contain some remaining fossil fuel investments while they fully implement their policy.
