The DivestSFU coalition, consistent with the University's commitment to sustainability, calls upon Simon Fraser University's Board of Governors to:
- Increase transparency in regards the climate risk and carbon intensity of SFU’s investments;
- Immediately freeze any new investment in fossil-fuel companies; and
- Divest within five years from direct ownership of, and from any funds that include, fossil-fuel public equities and corporate bonds.
