What is Fossil Free AU?
FFAU is a student led campaign that demands American University eliminates indirect and direct investments in fossil fuel companies from AU's endowment.
Why is Fossil Free AU important?
American University promotes itself as being committed to sustainability, yet AU has $18.8 million invested in the top coal, oil, and gas companies. We believe that continuing to invest in these companies makes AU complicit in the climate crisis— a threat that jeopardizes all of our futures by refusing to halt these investments, AU is prioritizing the fossil fuel industry's interests above those of its own students.
