Catholic groups join global fossil fuel divestment drive

Catholic groups join global fossil fuel divestment drive

Gianfranco Cattai, president of FOCSIV, promised to step up pressure on world leaders ahead of the G7 Summit. "We are extremely concerned that the G7 Summit will not make any official climate commitment, only adopting less ambitious objectives than those of Paris and preventing the US withdraw," he said. "In the face of this political impasse, several Catholic organisations are committed in the name of Laudato Si' to promoting social and climate justice through concrete fossil fuel divestment declarations. We hope that this action will be a call to international leaders to engage in fighting climate change and, at the same time, a support to the G7 Italian presidency in continuing its work on prioritising the climate issue on the agenda of the summit."
