Sign the Divestment Agreement and publicly declare it no longer supports the Fossil Fuel industries and is striving for Fossil Free alternatives.

Why is this important?

Fossil Fuels have a devastating negative effect on the environment, as the production and the consumption contributes significantly to global climate change. They are responsible for the increasing amount of harmful chemicals such as carbon dioxide released into the atmosphere.

We should be investing in renewable energy sources rather than directly supporting and funding corporations such as British Petroleum (BP), who are accountable for environmental disasters such The Deepwater Horizon Oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico in 2010.

As an institute of Higher education how can we publicly support such corporations that attempt to green wash the facts?

Derby, United Kingdom
