Divest Princeton is a coalition of students, faculty, and alumni calling on Princeton University to #divest its endowment from fossil fuel companies and reinvest responsibly.
On May 27, 2021 Princeton pledged endowment neutrality (but with no deadline) & divestment from coal & tar sands. But the IEA says no new investments in fossil fuels. The world needs real divestment, time frames & transparency. In the face of a climate crisis, Princeton must do more. This is a historic victory for activists at Princeton but it is just the start. We look forward to seeing this announcement translated into meaningful divestment and dissociation from the companies that brought us to this point. No #greenwashing. Until then, we will organize!
