The Church of England is to sell its shares in oil and gas firms that fail to do enough to tackle climate change.
It will pull its investment out of firms not on track to meet the Paris Agreement on climate change by 2023.
The General Synod, the church’s parliament, voted 347 to four in favour of the symbolic move.
The Church of England said the vote made it clear that “the church must play a leading role on the urgent issue of climate change”.
