SFU to reduce investments’ carbon footprint, side-steps divestment

CBC mentioned UBC in a story about the decision by Simon Fraser University to reduce the carbon footprint of its investment portfolio.

Many of Canada’s biggest universities, including UBC, Dalhousie, McGill, the University of Calgary, and the University of Toronto voted against divestment despite campaigning and petitioning from students.

The article reported that UBC decided to create a separate fund for “sustainable” investments.
