An article in The Harvard Crimson focused on the recent report of the president’s divestment committee at U of T:
Last December, a committee at the University of Toronto released a report on the issue of divestment, drawing a clear line by aligning itself with the needs of the Paris agreement. It recommended that the university not finance companies whose “actions blatantly disregard the international effort to limit the rise in average global temperatures to not more than one and a half degrees Celsius above pre-industrial averages by 2050…These are fossil fuels companies whose actions are irreconcilable with achieving internationally agreed goals.”
Hopefully, this principle will be re-affirmed when President Gertler makes the final decision. We expect that at the end of March.
