CB Bhattacharya, H.J. Zoffer Chair in Sustainability and Ethics and director of the new Katz Center for Sustainable Business, comments in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette on the University of Pittsburgh’s investments in fossil fuels through its endowment portfolio. He is joined by David Denis, Roger Ahlbrandt Sr. Chair in Finance and chair of a joint committee of faculty, staff, and students that produced a report exploring the tradeoffs between high-return investments and those that may align with the University’s mission but not yield high returns.
