On 14 January, the Haringey council pensions committee pledged to divest its £900m pension fund from coal, and to invest one-third of its equity funds into a ‘low-carbon fund’.

A divestment petition with more than 2,500 signatures was later presented to a full council meeting. Any petition with more than 2,200 names has to be put before councillors for discussion.
