University's reponse to Laudato Si’

St Mary's University, Twickenham has vowed to move away from all fossil fuel companies by adding its name to People & Planet and NUS’ Fossil Free Declaration.

In announcing its commitment, St Mary’s joins Newman University in Birmingham and several Catholic dioceses in England and Wales including Lancaster, Middlesbrough, Arundel & Brighton and Hallam.

St Mary’s Vice-Chancellor, Anthony McClaran, said: “As Pope Francis has reminded us in his powerful encyclical Laudato Si’, we all have a part to play in caring for our common home and building a greener, sustainable future.

“I am proud that we at St Mary’s are making this commitment.”
