Pensions Investment Conference Picket
Wed 7th June, 8.30am-10am
Edinburgh International Conference Centre – 150 Morrison St
Pensions and Lifetime Savings Association Conference
Sponsors include some of the biggest global investors in fossil fuel companies – including BlackRock, State Street, JP Morgan. Speakers include senior representatives from these companies and also from BP, all seeking to increase the flow of pension savings into their businesses from UK pension funds.
A coalition of climate justice and fossil fuel divestment groups, including XR Edinburgh & Lothians, is organising a picket of the conference at 8:30am – 10am. We will show up with banners, flags and placards and other creative visuals. We will be handing out flyers to the delegates (the people responsible for investing our pension savings) calling out BlackRock for its colossal investments in fossil fuel companies and BP for its greenwashing.
