The University has announced that it will complete its transition out of fossil fuel investments within three years.
The decision, approved by the University’s ruling body, the University Court, follows its recent commitment to become carbon neutral by 2040.
Andy Kerr, Director of ECCI, was a member of the Fossil Fuel Working Group which advised the University Court on the decision.
The University is at the forefront of research internationally on climate change and the technologies and policies to mitigate the effects of climate change.
It has already invested more than £150 million in low carbon technology, climate-related research and businesses that directly benefit the environment since 2010, including in the creation of ECCI.
