Dunedin City Council
Kia Kaha Dunedin City Council

Dunedin City Councillors will vote whether to divest from fossil fuels this Spring 2014. Oil Free Otago strongly support our councillors and urge them to do the right thing for our climate and our future.

The DCC voted in May to endorse a policy direction to develop a Socially Responsible Investment Policy for its Waipori Fund, which would intend to exclude direct investment in fossil fuel extraction, tobacco, armaments, gambling and pornography.

The DCC is currently writing up a document to be presented to Council for a final vote, confirming whether Dunedin will truly become the first New Zealand city to divest from fossil fuels.

Kia kaha DCC! Be the first NZ city to Divest from Fossil Fuels! We support you!
