Divest the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Binghamton from Fossil Fuels
Commit to remove all holdings in fossil fuel companies from the UUCB Endowment Fund within 5 years.
Why is this important?
Unless most of the known fossil fuel reserves are left in the ground, humanity faces certain catastrophe due to climate change. And yet, the business plan of fossil fuel companies is to extract all those reserves and even look for more. As such, their behavior is deeply immoral. Our congregation cares deeply about the future of our children and life on earth. It is important that our Endowment Fund investments reflect our values.
