Our Proposal

In the fall of 2017, GU Fossil Free submitted a proposal to the Committee on Investments and Social Responsibility recommending divestment from tar sands extraction.

On April 30th, 2018, CISR recommended the university “use reasonable efforts to avoid investments in companies whose principal business is the extraction of tar sands.”

On June 7th, 2018, the Board of Directors “supported a recommendation to use reasonable efforts to avoid investments in companies whose principal business is the extraction of bituminous sands (“tar sands”) for use in energy production.”

Below is a link to our proposal in PDF form. Feel free to download and distribute this document.
