  • Ethical Investments at The University of Winnipeg

    August 6th, 2019

    Over the past year, the University of Winnipeg Foundation and the UWSA have had several discussions around responsible investing.

    While recognizing the work done by the Foundation since 2016, the UWSA recommended that two possible ways to follow through their commitment to invest ethically. Two ways we can move forward are by:

    • Tracking and publicizing our fossil fuel investments
    • And, setting tangible goals beyond baseline Environmental, Social, and Governmental Criteria.

    The 2018-19 VPSA, Jade DeFehr presented an update and recommendations to the University of Winnipeg Board of Regents in Spring 2019. You can read the full speech here: Board of Regents Responsible Investments Speech.
