AGU has started to divest its portfolio to strengthen our commitment to mission-related investments and to better align with our strategic plan, which places a strong focus on a sustainable future. This divestment started in October 2021 and will take up to 18 months to complete. As a sign of further alignment with our vision of a sustainable future, AGU Board of Directors has also asked its Finance and Investment Committee to chart a path toward carbon neutrality for all AGU’s investments.
Your commitment makes a difference in AGU’s ability to provide the programs and opportunities for mentoring and professional development that propel our sector forward. As you plan your year-end giving, please consider what you believe makes AGU unique and valuable; the work that AGU does to support and advance the sciences; and how you can help.
