We would very much appreciate sharing a short public statement  (~150 words) from you (mother tongue and english). Please take these questions as your starting point: 1) Why was this decision right for your institution? 2) How do you think the energy industry will change in the coming years? 3) If you could speak with the heads of governments or fossil fuel companies, what would you want to say?
[Optional] What is your total asset base?
Journalists usually are interested in the size of the combined asset base of all Catholic institutions divesting. Please do consider sharing any figures with us that we can share with journalists as an example of the scale of your institution and, if possible, the amount of money you are divesting.
A copy of your responses will be emailed to the address you provided.
