Princeton announces partial divestment from publicly traded fossil fuel companies and further dissociation from 90 companies
The actions announced on September 29,2022 by the University and the Board of Trustees are a huge step towards full divestment and dissociation from fossil fuels. This decision is the result of a decade of activism by Princeton students, faculty, staff and alumni. While the Trustees fail to acknowledge this activism, Divest Princeton is proud of what has been accomplished. And although the university has taken a critical step, Princeton still falls short. Divest Princeton will keep fighting for our goals of full divestment and the end to all fossil fuel funding of research on campus. We know that it’s possible: They’ve come this far.
It’s Princeton’s moment to become a leader.
