Beyond Divestment: Everything You Need to Know about Reinvestment in Climate Solutions

Fossil Fuel Divestment has been the phrase on everyone’s lips.

Our campaign is focused on taking our money out of the dirty fossil fuel industry removing their social licence to operate. Students across the country are demanding that their universities' administrations think critically about the social and political impacts of their investments.

Our movement is forcing universities to take unprecedented action.

With this new eye to where money is flowing, there has been something missing from the conversation that has the power to amplify the impact of divestment: that element is reinvestment. Reinvestment moves money toward solutions that will directly grow the green economy. While we need investment in these types of technology and infrastructure in order to transition our economy, reinvestment also creates a unique opportunity to support our allies in frontline communities.

“Reinvestment can address public health issues by funding developments in wastewater treatment and mass transit. Investments in new technology will increase access and affordability of renewable energy, resulting in increased savings for all communities.”

Today the Responsible Endowments Coalition and Energy Action Coalition unveils a new resource: A Complete Guide to Reinvestment. We are calling on universities to reinvest. Investments of just 5% of our collective endowments could grow the green economy by $20 billion. As individuals, pension funds, and communities join this movement the act of reinvesting becomes revolutionary.
