Sustainability Plan 2016-2020: Investments Forum

The University of Melbourne's Sustainability Charter released in March 2016 set out a commitment to "implement investment strategies consistent with the University's commitment to sustainability and its financial and legal responsibilities". The University has been taking a broad approach by addressing all interactions with the fossil fuel industry, rather than treating investments as a standalone issue.

Have your say on the University's approach at the Sustainability Plan 2016-2020: Investments Forum. Hosted by Maxine McKew, Honorary Fellow at the University of Melbourne, the University community will have a discussion over the most effective approach a university can take to contribute to limiting global warming below 2 degrees.

Speakers will be: Professor Don Henry – Melbourne Enterprise Professor of Environmentalism at the University’s Melbourne Sustainable Society Institute (MSSI) Professor Cameron Hepburn – Professor of Environmental Economics at the University of Oxford and alumnus of the University (via pre-recorded video) Matt Clare – Fossil Free MU member and current first year Juris Doctor student Dr Leeora Black – Founder and Managing Director of the Australian Centre for Corporate Social Responsibility (ACCSR) Martjin Wilder – Head of Baker & McKenzie’s Global Environmental Markets & Climate Change practice and Adjunct Professor of Climate Change Law at the Australian National University
