Colby College Quietly Divested from Fossil Fuels l The Colby Echo

By: 

  • In September of 2015, Colby College quietly divested its direct holdings from fossil fuels. This was done without fanfare or a press release, and the administration has yet to publicly announce this divestment. The Colby Alliance for Renewable Energy has asked the college to commit to no future investments in the fossil fuel industry but so far the college has refused to make that commitment.
