Thus, the Princeton Sustainable Investment Initiative demands that the University:1. Immediately remove its holdings in all coal extraction companies, and2. Commit to a gradual reduction and eventual end to its investments in all other fossil fuels.
If Princeton is to claim its place as a leading institution in climate change research, it must first stop financing the very processes its professors and students are working to change. Only with an institutional shift in its approach to investment will Princeton be truly committed to sustainability and combatting climate change.
