Health risk: GPs to halt fossil fuel investments

Health risk: GPs to halt fossil fuel investments

The global fossil fuel divestment movement has scored another victory after the UK's Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP) announced it is to stop any investment in fossil fuels. The group, which represents more than 52,000 members and is the largest Medical Royal College in the UK, said it has long-recognised that climate change has an adverse impact on both the environment and human health. It has previously worked with the UK Health Alliance on Climate Change to highlight the health risks presented by climate change, but has now decided to disinvest from fossil fuel assets as it seeks to reduce its own emissions impact.
