This site, brought to you by the Independent Petroleum Association of America’s (IPAA) International Committee, is part of a broader outreach campaign dedicated to educating the public and institutions alike on the facts about fossil fuel divestment.
“[T]he costs to investors of fossil fuel divestiture are highly likely and substantial, while the potential benefits – to the extent there are any – are ill-defined and uncertain at best.”
Professor Fischel, University of Chicago Law School
Experts across the UK are concluding that divestment is a misguided approach to addressing the effects of climate change, and could instead put into question the long-term financial well-being of institutions and pensioners alike – all while having no tangible impact on the companies targeted by this movement.
Whether through its successful divestment educational campaign in the US, the Oil & Gas Investment Symposium held in London or various other programs, IPAA is proud to serve as a bridge that connects its members to the capital markets and investment communities in crucial international markets.
