$40 trillion dollars divested from pension funds

At Stand.earth, we are coordinating the Climate Safe Pensions Network, engaging in state and city pensions campaigns and mobilizing the power of the Stand community to pressure decision makers who control trillions of dollars.

Stand is leading the way in the global movement to divest pensions and banks from oil and gas and has reached the historic mark of 40 trillion in assets divested from 1,500 institutions around the world. To put that huge number in perspective, 40 trillion is just under half of the world’s GDP. And it’s enough money to fund COVID-19 vaccinations for every single person in the world, 800 times over.
