Top News: GU Fossil Free pursues a socially-responsible investments (SRI) policy and transparency with the Board of Directors SRI Committee.
We are GU Fossil Free, Georgetown University’s student-run campaign asking that our university divest from fossil fuel companies and re-invest in a more sustainable future.
Fossil fuel and coal companies continue to pose a threat to public health, the global environment and human rights. While fossil fuel and coal production damages the environment as a whole, it has a particularly acute impact on the human rights and health of marginalized people of the United States and in the global south. On a practical financial level, investments in these companies are becoming increasingly risky and more volatile. It is unconscionable to pay for our education with investments that will condemn the planet to climate disaster.
