Fossil Fuel Divestment
It's wrong to wreck the planet—and it's even worse to profit from that wreckage. The fossil fuel divestment movement is calling on mission-driven institutions to divest from the dirty, dangerous fossil fuel companies that have caused climate catastrophe in their ruthless pursuit of profit. We hold our universities to a higher standard and are demanding they divest from this human rights violating rogue industry.
The fossil fuel divestment movement has spread like wildfire. It started on university campuses, but has spread to cities, faith-based institutions, foundations, pension funds, and more, all over the world. Our goal is to diminish the influence and power of the fossil fuel industry in the market, our political system, and in the social conscience overall. It's time for our universities to invest in accordance to their mission and in a safe, clean future for current students and future generations.
Hundreds of institutions have already divested - is yours next?
