Alex Mayer MEP Calls For Cambridge University To Divest From Fossil Fuels

Ahead of The Council of the University of Cambridge’s decision, expected this Friday 8th June 2018, on the Working Group Report on Divestment: “This has been a long campaign and I pay tribute to the students and academics who have kept up the relentless pressure to bring us to this week’s decision.
“The University of Cambridge is a powerful force. I wholeheartedly support divesting from the fossil fuel industry and taking a lead on promoting the low carbon economy.
“This is a global movement, only last week I was pleased to vote in the European Parliament for a sustainable finance package, while the UN promote the cause through the UNFCCC. Cambridge leads the world in many ways - we can here too.
“This is not about undermining the University's investments, it is vital for everyone’s future that our environment is protected, most of all for those who live in some of the poorest parts of the world.
“Divestment from fossil fuels will ensure we are successful.”
