Dr Ruth Valerio, Director of Advocacy at Tearfund, said:

“The Church of England's vote against the Shell board is a key step in holding the oil giant accountable for the damage they’re inflicting on the climate and people living in poverty. The vote is an important signal that the Church is prepared to take a bold stand for God’s world and those most impacted by the climate crisis. Delaying action to phase out oil and gas is catastrophic. The world’s most vulnerable communities can’t be left to suffer while Shell prioritises short term profits.”
