Our Proposal

“After a year and a half of campaigning, Georgetown University Fossil Free (GUFF), a student campaign focused on divestment of the GU endowment from the top 200 fossil fuel companies, has released its final proposal. The new proposal is a product of extended conversations with students, administrators, alumni, faculty, and the University’s Committee on Investments and Social Responsibility (CISR), to which GU Fossil Free first presented in May 2013. As a response to the concerns of many in the campus community, the 35-page long document debuts a detailed financial section that not only shows the implications of divestment to the endowment to be negligible, but argues extensively that carbon risk provides a sound financial rationale in favor of the endowment’s long-term profitability. In addition to this, the proposal makes clear Georgetown’s moral obligation to divest as both a Catholic and Jesuit university.”  –GU Fossil Free press release, August 2014
