The Problem

To shift Princeton University's endowment to only invest in environmentally friendly or neutral companies causing a reduction in environmental destruction and lessen the harmful impacts of global warming.

Our Plan

This project is comprised of four main aspects. 1) Adopt the United Nations’ Principles for Responsible Investment. 2) Sing the Carbon Disclosure Project. 3) Report an annual estimate the endowment's carbon footprint. 4) Create a committee to develop a set of environmentally and financially responsible investment guidelines. Along with these specific goals, campus awareness and education remain a important aspect of this initiative.
