Ethical Investment

St Hilda’s Investment Committee, with input from our undergraduates, was instrumental in designing the Climate Active Endowment Fund, in line with the The Oxford Martin Principles for Climate-Conscious Investment. These principles provide a framework for engagement with targeted firms and for disinvestment if reasonable engagement efforts have been made and responses found wanting.

In 2018, St Hilda’s was the first of the colleges of Oxford University to adopt a revised investment policy, which aims to ensure that the companies in which we invest act in compliance with the 2015 Paris Agreement to limit global temperature increases to well below 2°C.
