Carleton signs Climate Change Charter

Carleton University has announced that it is now a signatory of Investing to Address Climate Change: A Charter for Canadian Universities. The charter was established at the University of Toronto to help universities make responsible investment decisions through a set of principles and practices. These include adopting a responsible investing framework incorporating environmental, social, and governance factors; regularly measuring the carbon intensity of investment portfolios; publicly sharing evaluations of the progress towards these objectives; and evaluating investment managers according to the success in such objectives. Carleton VP of Finance and Administration Lorraine Dyke stated that the charter aligns well with the university’s goal to be a carbon neutral campus by 2050. “As a signatory of the Charter, we are taking additional steps towards a more sustainable economy today and in the future.” Carleton| Charter Note: Archived stories may contain dead links or be missing source links.
