With growing calls for fossil fuel divestment from many parts of the Carleton community, CRIC decided to explore the issue. In the fall and early winter of 2014, after an initial consideration of divestment, the committee decided that the important connection between fossil fuels and climate change made divestment potentially warranted, and we recommended in our February 2015 annual report and meeting with the Investment Committee to create a task force that would specifically examine fossil fuel divestment.
