By investing in companies still searching for and burning fossil fuels, Oxford is supporting an industry that is ignoring the strong science of climate change, and undermining our very futures. Calling for divestment places Oxford in a global community striving to inspire change, and place power away from large multinational corporations and back into the hands of the people.

By investing in an industry intending to exploit four times more fossil fuel reserves than can be burned “safely”, our University is unintentionally undermining our future. Divestment is needed to protect the integrity of Oxford, and build political pressure to prevent the carbon budget from being exceeded.
