Sign Petition Asking City of Mountain View to Divest from Chevron ($7.9M) and Exxon ($5.9M)

Sign the Petition

This past year, the City of Mountain View's Environmental Sustainability Task Force 2 engaged residents, staff, environmental experts and stakeholders in a mighty 9-month effort to "[help] the City meet its climate goals," producing a 318-page report of recommendations. Unbelievably, over the same period, the City doubled investments in Chevron—from $5.5M in June 2017 to $7.9M in June 2018 (see tables below).

We are asking the City of Mountain View to divest its investments in Chevron ($7.9M, up from $5.5M in June 2017) and Exxon ($5.9M).

In addition, we ask that:

  • a screen for fossil fuel companies be added to Section 6.3 Prohibited Investments of the City Council B-2 Investment Policy,
  • public money should hasten, not delay, the transition to clean energy,
  • we support local governments that employ a triple bottom-line to uphold the public trust.
