U-M Energy Investments: a message from UMEI Director Mark Barteau

Tuesday, June 13, 2017

Dear colleagues,
Some of you may have seen the link in this morning's U-M News Clips from the VP of Communications to a Bloomberg story about U-M's endowment investment increase in fossil energy. If you did not see it, here’s a link to the Bloomberg article subject: https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2017-06-12/university-of-michigan-endowment-to-boost-investments-in-energy

This is on the agenda for the June 15 U-M Board of Regents meeting: (item #1 under Finance/ Property).

Since we share an interest in the University's commitment to clean energy and sustainability, I wanted to be sure that you were aware of this action.

Mark Barteau
Director, University of Michigan Energy Institute
