The Board of Trustees of New York's Barnard College, a women's college affiliated with Columbia University, recently voted to divest from energy companies that deny climate change who are currently within the college's $286 million endowment.
Barnard students have pressed the college to establish a broad divestment pledge, a movement that in the last five years has grown to campuses across the country. Last year, a committee of Barnard trustees, faculty, and students endorsed a proposal that would divest from only fossil fuel companies that seek to deny climate science or thwart efforts to mitigate the impact of global warming.

Our unique "360-degree" approach focuses on exploring energy from a variety of directions to provide individualized solutions for each client.
Gotham 360 was founded in 2007 when CEO Jennifer Kearney catapulted her expertise of the energy industry into running a full-service energy consulting and management firm. With over 30 years of combined experience, Gotham 360 has since become an influencer in the field of energy management & sustainability, working with companies to source the most innovative and cost-effective solutions available.
