Divest NUI Galway From Fossil Fuels

Divest NUI Galway From Fossil Fuels

Divest NUI Galway from fossil fuels within 2 years and move investments to more sustainable and ethical sources.

Why is this important?

Currently, NUI Galway has at least 3.4 million Euro invested in oil and gas shares globally. Though shares in these fossil fuel companies may prove to be profitable in the short-term, research indicates that at least 80% of fossil fuel reserves must stay in the ground in order to prevent catastrophic changes to our climate. Therefore, it is the responsibility of public institutions to disengage in partnerships and support of fossil fuel companies in favor of more sustainable and ethical investments that will promote the health and welfare of both the planet, and all of her peoples.
