How much does your council invest in fossil fuels?

Despite the need for urgent action on climate change and the many benefits of investing in our local areas, local government invests billions in fossil fuel companies like Shell and BP. Citizens have the right to know how their government is perpetuating dependency on fossil fuels when we should be transitioning away from them.
