The Trustees of Forbes Library have divested their investments from companies involved in extracting fossil fuels. This move was made in an attempt to reduce climate change by tackling its ultimate causes.The board voted unanimously to make this shift in April of this year and the $4.8 million portfolio is now free of fossil fuel companies according to the library’s investment firm, Bartholomew & Company. This move is in line with the City of Northampton’s investment parameters and a handful of other municipalities across the state.
