The Guardian Media Group's decision to divest is in thanks to our readers — The Guardian Media Group (GMG) has begun a process of divesting its more than £800m investment portfolio from fossil fuels. It is the largest fund globally to make such a commitment. You might think that when the Guardian started our climate change campaign last month I, as editor-in-chief, could get on the phone to our investment managers and order this to happen.

'Why we are divesting from fossil fuels', Guardian Media Group chair Neil Berkett - video — GMG chair Neil Berkett announces that the company that owns the Guardian will divest its investment fund of over £800m from fossil fuels. The move follows the Guardian's Keep it in the ground campaign to press large investors to sell their shares in oil, coal and gas companies

News of the World surveillance of detective: what Rebekah Brooks knew — As editor of the News of the World Rebekah Brooks was confronted with evidence that her paper's resources had been used on behalf of two murder suspects to spy on the senior detective who was investigating their alleged crime.

Climate change: why the Guardian is putting threat to Earth front and centre — Journalism tends to be a rear-view mirror. We prefer to deal with what has happened, not what lies ahead. We favour what is exceptional and in full view over what is ordinary and hidden. Famously, as a tribe, we are more interested in the man who bites a dog than the other way round.

Lord Gavron obituary — Bob Gavron, who has died aged 84, was one of Britain's most successful printers, the chair for three years of the Guardian Media Group, a supporter of the Labour party and an advocate for the arts. From an initial investment of £5,000, his St Ives printing group, founded in 1964, grew into a £350m company over 30 years.

A taxing question — In April 1932, a small boat sailing on Windermere was hit by a sudden squall and capsized. There were two people in the boat. One, Ted Scott, was drowned. His teenage son, Richard, swam to the shore and was saved.
