SGA resolution on divestment

Kassondra Little, Senior Staff Writer

At last night’s meeting, the SGA passed a resolution that called on the board of trustees to divest from fossil fuels.

The resolution demanded UVM divest from the top 200 companies who contribute the most to carbon emissions as indexed by the Carbon Tracker Initiative.

The resolution also called for board transparency on fossil fuel investment and where the University endowment is being invested.

This resolution was sponsored by Will Corcoran, the chair of the committee on the environment.
