Carbon capture and storage means trying to catch greenhouse gas emissions and store them, such as sealing them in underground caves. The Government has indicated its support for the recommendation. The JIM Cluster is deeply concerned that the recommendation will divert funds away from supporting the transition to renewable energy, to prop up fossil fuel corporations.
The moves towards a zero greenhouse gas emissions future will be hampered if investors keep backing fossil fuel projects and corporations. Therefore, it is disappointing that almost all superannuation funds remain heavily invested in fossil fuel corporations.
