Canadian universities unite as investors to help address the climate crisis

UNIE is an effective and persistent corporate engagement program for university endowments and pension plans that leverages their power as institutional investors to meaningfully address climate change-related risks.

In partnership with SHARE, UNIE engages companies in the investment portfolios of participating universities. Our engagements focus on accelerating the transition to a low-carbon economy in key sectors where advocacy can make the biggest differenceincluding energy, utilities, finance, transportation and manufacturing. 

“These universities are showing leadership in addressing the climate crisis. Acting as investors, Canadian university pension plans and endowments can have a powerful influence on corporate behavior. Working together in one program amplifies each institution’s voice and leverages their power to bring about change. We invite the rest of the university community to join us.”

– Kevin Thomas, Chief Executive Officer, SHARE
