Divestment…Here?

04.25.2013 · Posted in Uncategorized

Divesting from fossil fuel companies will put our college campus on the right track towards making Stonehill an even greener and more sustainable community. Leading Colleges across the country are taking the steps so that they no longer invest their money in companies that support the fossil fuel industry whether that is in coal, oil, or natural gas. Instead campuses are looking elsewhere towards companies that have taken steps to go green and invest in renewable resources. Implementing a five year divestment plan here at Stonehill will be a consistent move towards upholding this catholic institution’s mission statement “towards the creation of a more just and compassionate world”. The best part is we are not alone in our endeavor and we can be a leader too! Look at the links below to see some examples of other campuses working towards divestment!
