Australian Super Fund Dumps Tobacco Investments

Hesta Dumps Tobacco Investments.

Another Aussie fund has taken the decision to pull out of tobacco.  Great quote in this piece:

”If a health fund invests in the tobacco industry, they are part of the tobacco industry,”

So if an English Council invests in tobacco companies, it is part of the tobacco industry.  The industry that kills more people prematurely than any other preventable cause; the industry that causes nearly all lung cancer; the industry which is the largest single driver of health inequalities.

The conflict of interest is untenable.
