In anticipation of the Canada Public Pension Investment Boards’s (CPPIB) biennial public meeting this fall, we take this opportunity to call out its choice to invest in the destruction of the planet and human rights year after year. We will not stand idly by while the retirement savings of over 21 million Canadians finance the climate crisis, war, and international human rights violations in the name of “building our financial security in retirement.” In reality, these investments destroy our future rather than secure it. It’s time to divest from companies that profit from war, violate human rights, conduct business with oppressive regimes, damage vital ecosystems, and prolong the use of climate-wrecking fossil fuels– and to re-invest in a better world instead.
