Climate Smart Universities

After the Global Financial Crisis many of the top universities globally were put under severe financial pressure that saw funding cuts and large restructures. The simple reason for this is that their operations relied - and still rely - heavily on returns from their portfolio investments. The Vital Few want to ensure that in future our top universities avoid losing more important funding because they are invested in risky, emissions intensive businesses that could face a large devaluation in value due to increasing carbon regulation and breakthroughs in renewable energy technology. Of course, we also want universities to invest in low carbon companies because this is the best option for our climate.
