Dominique Fourniol, Head of Media Relations at UCL released the following information regarding the UCL Council discussion on ethical investment last week:
'At its meeting on 13 March, UCL Council received the report of a review, commissioned by the Provost, of UCL's approach to ethical standards in investment selection. Council agreed that, in the light of this review, UCL should further develop its socially responsible investment (SRI) policy - and is setting up a sub-committee of Council to take this work forward. The sub-committee is charged to submit to the next Council meeting in June specific proposals for the further development and implementation of SRI policy at UCL.'
We congratulate UCL Council on taking steps towards ethical investment.
WE CALL ON UCL COUNCIL TO GIVE STUDENTS AND ALUMNI A FORMAL CONSULTATIVE ROLE IN DEVELOPING THE ETHICAL INVESTMENT POLICY !
