The Royal College of Psychiatrists has divested its multi-million-pound investment portfolio from fossil fuels.

The organisation has also suggested while it is a "necessary" move, divesting from fossil fuels "does not go far enough".

Going forward, it has committed to only invest in companies that follow "good environmental, social and governance policies and practices", such as businesses working to reduce their waste, support local communities and promote diversity and equality in their workforce.
