Abstract

As university endowments face pressure to divest stocks of companies contributing the most to climate change, much of the public discussion has focused on the looming math of the environmental impact of a carbon-based economy. As endowments decide whether or not to divest or implement screens, another kind of math is needed as part of the process: the math of portfolio analysis.

Keywords: carbon divestment, optimized
