New Campaign Asks Peel Holdings To Divest From Fossil Fuels To Clean Energy

A new campaign has started today to encourage Peel Holdings, Salford City Council and Trafford Council to transfer from dirty industry such as fracking to clean, green energy

A petition is now online at change.org and the petition states

“We, the people, request Peel Holdings, Salford City Council and Trafford Council join the global divestment campaign to transfer from dirty industry to clean, green energy

The global divestment campaign is getting larger and larger and on Saturday 30th May 2015 there is a Global Day Of Action, an international mobilisation of numerous groups and organisations on the problems of Climate Change

We recognise Peels’ position as pioneers of North-West business and believe that it is in the interests of corporations such as Peel who have business interests on coastal areas to limit sea-level rise

We request that Peel, Salford City Council and Trafford Council urgently review the Atlantic Gateway plans to incorporate Ecosystem Services and Climate Change into the business model

This request is made in light of the launch of the One Million Climate Jobs Now campaign, the Peoples’ Climate Marches, the recent Client Earth victory in the courts and the upcoming Paris Climate Talks of November/December 2015”
