Western Michigan University invests very little of its money in fossil fuel companies. That’s the finding of a panel that has studied the environmental impact of the university’s investments.
The committee's report was one of several items the Board of Trustees considered on Thursday.
The panel says that while the university owns no stock in fossil fuel companies, a small amount of the cash the university puts in investment funds does go to unsustainable energy. But faculty member Tom Edmonds, who serves on the panel, says it found the amount was less than one percent of Western’s operating cash.
