Oxford to Divest from Fossil Fuels; Harvard Will Follow, But Not Until 2050

HeadlineApr 22, 2020

At Harvard, President Larry Bacow said Tuesday his university would move its $41 billion endowment to carbon-neutral investments by 2050. The student group Divest Harvard called the move “insufficient,” writing in a statement, “By evading divestment, Harvard is once again standing with fossil fuel companies and against its students’ futures.”
