We want the University of York to pledge to completely divest from Fossil Fuels in line with their ethical investment policy which states:
“The University will not knowingly invest in companies whose activities include practices which directly pose a risk of serious harm to individuals or groups, or whose activities are inconsistent with the mission and values of the University.”
Why is this important?
The University is manifestly failing in their commitment not to knowingly invest in companies whose practices pose a risk of harm to individuals or groups.
The combustion of fossil fuels is responsible for 87% of all human carbon dioxide emissions which drastically contributes to anthropogenic climate change which in turn kills approximately 600,000 people yearly.
