It's time to end the futile engagement with the oil and gas industry.
At Green Century, we believe in the power of investors to motivate corporate action. As the home of one of the most active shareholder advocacy programs in the U.S., we've seen it happen. It is time to recognize that the power of investors isn't limitless, however. There are some actors who simply can't, or won't, be moved.
We're talking about the oil and gas industry. Oil and gas companies have spent billions and billions of dollars blocking efforts to address climate change and disingenuously sowing doubt about the science behind it. But they knew. Exxon knew. They all knew.
How much longer will investors who care about the planet financially support the corporations most to blame for the climate crisis?
In 1982, the Exxon Research and Engineering Company predicted the rise in global temperatures and atmospheric carbon dioxide. Exxon knew.
For 40 years, oil and gas companies have misled the public and their shareholders about climate change and the risk it poses to the planet. It's time to get serious about the climate crisis. It's time for investors concerned about the environment and global heating to divest.
