I support divestment because we have to show fossil fuel companies that their behaviour is irresponsible, unethical, and needs to stop. Oxford University’s reputational power would make its divestment from fossil fuels symbolic.

Fossil fuel companies are ignoring the mountain of scientific evidence and assuming they can stick with business as usual. Instead of helping us transition to a sustainable energy system, they’re exploring, extracting and lobbying for more fossil fuels. Oxford divesting is one way of telling the fossil fuel companies, politicians and financial markets that this has got to stop.
