Divestment op-ed


in Economics, Politics, The environment, Writing

In response to the recent UTAM report on implementing environmental, social, and governance screening I helped write an op-ed for The Varsity explaining how the action the university has taken is inconsistent with its values and divestment policy.

A new U of T student group focused on promoting the Leap Manifesto plans to revive the campaign in September.

It is important to continue to monitor the actual implementation of the incorporation of environmental factors into investment. This op-ed contributes to this.

From the beginning of the divestment campaign, UTAM has refused to cooperate in any way – including providing the information on investments needed to satisfy the U of T divestment policy.

By choosing to put them in charge of implementing his decision, President Gertler has ensured that as little as possible will actually be done, with a maximum effort to provide U of T with good public relations.
