If you are a member of a pension scheme, it is very likely that money is invested on your behalf in BP and other oil companies. BP's Gulf of Mexico oil spill has damaged not only the environment and livelihoods, but also our pensions investments.
BP has admitted that it was not prepared to deal with the consequences of a deepwater oil spill, and there are worrying signs that BP and other oil companies may prove similarly unprepared to deal with the challenges of global warming.
For example, BP's chairman at this year's AGM said that its business strategy is being developed on the basis of a model of energy demand which assumes no change in government policies and which experts say would result in catastrophic consequences for our climate.
As a member of a pension scheme, you have the right to make your voice heard, to ask for the money invested on your behalf to be used to encourage company behaviour that is both environmentally and financially responsible. Please take a moment to take action.
