Why Ethical Investment?

3 Oct

As a democratic institution the university should foster open debate and use its resources responsibly and with concern for the wider world.

The university has over £200 million of investments; many of these were donations to the university, and it should be careful to use them well.

It has already had a policy on ethical investment since 2003 but it has not been implemented effectively; we believe a review open to all members of the university will allow it to be strengthened.

Ethical investments can be done while remaining profitable; there are many ethical companies out there that offer good returns and are in need of investors.

So get involved and vote YES! to the motion next week!
