Welcome to Divest-Invest MN

It is here that we are organizing our campaign to get Minnesota to divest its pension holdings from fossil fuels and invest in renewable industries.

If it is wrong to wreck the climate, then it is wrong to profit from that wreckage.

JOIN US! Sign the petition below and contact your representatives.

Divest-Invest Minnesota is an earnest, grass-roots local campaign urging the Minnesota State Board of Investments to begin to divest state-held pension funds from fossil fuel corporations. Such a strategy can, in both short- and longer terms, improve the stability and resiliency of pension-fund financial returns.

We know that sound investments can be made that are economically sustainable, as well as beneficial and protective of Minnesota’s priceless environment. We urge the State Board of Investment to take advantage of rapidly expanding opportunities to move our state economy toward renewable energy and self-sufficiency. Such investment strategies will more effectively address the myriad threats of climate change destabilization.

Join the campaign working to divest our state pension funds from fossil fuels!

Divest-Invest Minnesota is working hard to make sure the pensions of hard-working Minnesotans are protected and that our state is no longer making risky investments in harmful fossil fuel extraction and transport. Fossil fuel extraction and consumption are major contributing factors to climate change which threatens us all, including future generations.
Please sign our petition which states:
The Minnesota State Board of Investment should begin to divest from the top 200 fossil fuel companies and invest in sustainable and renewable energy and energy efficiency projects that benefit Minnesota’s economy:
