Want to engage with Swansea University's investment approach?
At Swansea University we have developed a comprehensive Ethical Investment Policy which was approved by the University's Investment Sub-Committee and Director of Finance in June, 2014. Our Investment Subcommittee formally considers representations in relation to the ethical standing of any University investment.
Update: March 2019 - The Swansea University senior management team and finance committee have made a formal commitment to Divest from Fossil Fuels. View the University press release.
We also have a Sustainable Procurement and Fairtrade Working Group here at the University which is an ideal forum for discussion of any investment, prior to formal representation, and helps to ensure the representation is in the correct format to progress to Committee. Our Sustainable Procurement and Fairtrade Working Group – which includes Ethical Investment as a standard agenda item - meets termly. The working group reports on progress against the objectives of our Ethical investment policy.
