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.

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.
