Santa Clara University: divest from fossil fuels!

Santa Clara University: divest from fossil fuels!

We are asking the University to:
1. Immediately freeze any new investment in fossil fuel extraction companies.
2. Divest from direct ownership and any commingled funds that include fossil fuel public equities and corporate bonds within 5 years.

Why is this important?

Fossil Free SCU is a student coalition working to pressure Santa Clara University to pull their investments from the top 200 oil extraction companies. We formed in October 2013 because we oppose our school’s financial support of an industry that perpetuates an oppressive system, one that marginalizes the poor and disenfranchised communities our Jesuit values call us to protect. To fund this extractive economy is to perpetuate an unjust world and profit from the wreckage.

Santa Clara University, El Camino Real, Santa Clara, CA, United States

Reasons for signing

  • The economic value of Fossil Fuels is grossly overstated. Any organization that prides itself in innovation should take the opportunity to lead in the imminent transformation to reusable fuels. Go Broncos.
