STOCKHOLM (Reuters) - Greenpeace activists on Wednesday hung a banner outside the state pension fund AP3’s office in Stockholm to protest investments in coal, oil and gas companies by Swedish state pension funds.

Such investments do not support environmentally sustainable development, Greenpeace said in a statement. The banner on the facade of the office building housing AP3 called for the funds to “obey the law” and to “move the money”.
