Student groups are calling on ANU to deliver on its promise to sell its shares in gas supplier Metgasco, but to go further and consider the environmental and ethical impact of their entire portfolio.
In 2011 students from ANU Environment Collective welcomed the Vice Chancellor’s decision
to sell ANU’s shares in Metgasco, but are concerned tat a year and half later this is still yet
to happen. They now want the Vice Chancellor to develop a plan to go completely fossil free
within the next five years.
“Even if it’s not concerned about environmental damage, which it should be, ANU must
look at the huge financial risks from fossil investments. Its losses from Metgasco are the
perfect example”, Tom Swann said.
EDIT: Oops, that original sentence did read “calling on ANU not to deliver on its promise” when I wrote it earlier today, but that is a really stupid typo and I apologise. I promise to attempt not to put small typos into my articles which completely reverse the point of what I’m trying to say. Eep.
