金融 & 治理
Barnard is incorporating climate and sustainability into its decision-making, from strategic planning and capital improvements to our endowment and daily financial choices. 2017年3月, the 校董会 announced that the College would divest its endowment from fossil-fuel companies that dispute climate science or otherwise seek to thwart efforts to mitigate the impact of climate change. Corporate behaviors that question settled science, 在言语或行为上, conflict with Barnard's academic mission that supports evidence-based solutions to society's problems.
学院提供了一个 气候科学名单 that evaluates oil and gas companies on their commitment to climate science and sustainability based on criteria developed by Barnard 教师, 学生, 和工作人员. 这项工作是与 FFI (原无化石燃料指数)和 忧思科学家联盟.
Barnard will use the 气候科学名单 to guide and focus its endowment on companies that recognize climate science and the risks posed by climate change; the College is making it public to provide a framework for other institutions to consider and debate as they plan their own investment decisions.
Barnard’s approach to divestment is unique and innovative. We recognize that our approach is but one aspect of gaining an overall understanding how the fossil fuel industry is confronting the challenge of climate change. 的 气候科学名单 is therefore intended to be a living document; our process is an evolving one and our methodology will continue to be refined over time and our evaluation will be updated periodically. 我们欢迎评论和提问 firstname.lastname@example.org.
可持续性 and climate action cannot be the responsibility of just one person or department at Barnard. We are committed to integrating sustainability as a priority at all levels of institutional leadership. 的 Sustainable Practices Committee (SPC) brings together 学生, 教师, 和工作人员 to define sustainability priorities and initiatives. 学生 primarily collaborate on sustainable initiatives on campus through the Student Government Association’s (SGA) 可持续发展委员会, formerly the Sustainable Initiatives Consulting Board (SIC-B), which works alongside the SPC to execute sustainable initiatives on campus.
的 Sustainable Practices Committee offers support and training for Barnard offices and departments, from help crafting internal mission-based climate goals for individual offices to providing waste-sorting workshops. 办公室或部门可以联系 email@example.com for information on support and trainings.
