Local Councils Invest Pension Funds in Fracking

New data released by 350.org, Platform and Friends of the Earth shows that councils in Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire, Nottingham and Derby are all investing some of their pension funds in companies involved in fracking. Whilst the figures are low (4.59% for Nottingham & Nottinghamshire, and 4.37% for Derby and Derbyshire) they still represent millions of pounds of investment. Nationally, council pension funds invest over £9 billion in the global fracking industry.
