On December 14, 2023, McGill’s Board of Governors approved a comprehensive package of ambitious SRI commitments that include broadening the scope of the McGill Investment Pool (MIP)’s decarbonization strategy, divestment from direct holdings in Carbon Underground 200™ (CU200) fossil-fuel firms by 2025, higher targets for sustainable investment strategies, and a deeper integration of climate risk within MIP investment processes.

These commitments align with McGill’s broader sustainability strategy, which includes becoming a fully carbon-neutral university by 2040 and achieving zero-waste campuses by 2035. McGill has been repeatedly recognized as a global sustainability leader – most recently placing 13th out of 1,397 institutions worldwide in the 2024 QS World University Sustainability Rankings.
