We’re a collective of faith groups working together to move money out of nuclear weapons.
What we do
Nearly $32 billion is invested in nuclear weapons producing companies in the UK. But in January 2021, nuclear weapons became illegal under international law. This is because the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons has been passed by the UN and will be entering into legal force.
We want to make it easy to see where financial institutions are investing your money, and help you move your money out of weapons of mass destruction.
Together, we can make a difference. Our research makes it easy for you to write to your bank or pension provider with the facts and urge them to invest ethically.
Who we are
The Nuclear Weapons Financing Research Group consists of representatives of the Baptist Union of Great Britain, Church of Scotland, Christian CND, Ecumenical Council for Corporate Responsibility, Methodist Church, Quakers in Britain, Pax Christi UK, Soka Gakkai International-UK and the United Reformed Church.
We are committed to the implementation of the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons and some of our members are partners of Nobel Peace Prize winner, the International Campaign for the Abolition of Nuclear Weapons.
