Following the Town Hall in February 2013, the SRI Advisory Council took up the issue of fossil fuel divestment. After extensive research and discussion, the Advisory Council developed a comprehensive approach to energy investments at UVM that includes recommendations for various areas of the energy sector. These recommendations include divestment from coal companies, shareholder advocacy strategies and strategic investment in renewable energy. The Advisory Council submitted the Energy Investments Recommendations to Vice President Richard Cate in May, 2013. This document is currently under deliberation by the Investment Sub Committee.
