Energy and Climate Change

Divest Hackney is campaigning for Hackney Council to divest £62 million in fossil fuel investments from its £1.1 billion pension fund. 

Greenprint for Hackney

Responding to high energy bills, lack of decent jobs and the threat of ‘climate change’ can seem intimidating. Sustainable Hackney proposes a vision of a borough that empowers and supports anyone who wants to be energy efficient, get a green job or simply lead a more sustainable life.

Our work

  • Steering group members have been involved in Hackney Energy supporting the development of Hackney's first solar co-op  at Banister House in Homerton.
  • Steering group members are also involved in Divest Hackney which campaigns for Hackney Council to divest £6.2m in fossil fuel investment from a 1.1bn pension fund.
  • We organised a Hackney contingent in Nov 2015 at the People's March for Climate, Justice and Jobs ahead of the Paris summit.
  • We developed a vision for energy and climate change for Hackney - the Greenprint
