ST. EDWARD'S, DIVEST FROM FOSSIL FUELS

ST. EDWARD'S, DIVEST FROM FOSSIL FUELS

We ask St. Edward's University to freeze any new investments in the top 200 oil, gas and coal companies, completely divest from direct ownership of any commingled funds that include fossil fuel, public equities, and corporate bonds within 5 years, and direct a portion of reinvestment towards sustainable energy projects.

Why is this important?

As global citizens we question the moral implications of profiting from the fossil fuel industry. The impacts of climate change are disproportionately affecting minority populations of race and class, as well as those who have contributed least to global warming.

St. Edward's University, South Congress Avenue, Austin, TX, United States

Reasons for signing

  • Getting Universities to divest from fossil fuels is the first step in order to slow the effects of Climate Change!
  • clean energy is achievable if we stop supporting a destructive system!
