Open Letter to the BC Teachers Pension Plan

Open letter key points:

The burning of fossil fuels is driving the climate crisis.

Fossil fuel investments not only pose financial risks but also directly contradict teacher's responsibility to safeguard the future for students.

The BC Teachers' Pension Plan must direct the British Columbia Investment Management Corporation to phase out its fossil fuel investments.
