Fossil Free Careers Declaration
People & Planet's Fossil Free Campaign aims to dismantle the recruitment pipeline from universities into the oil, gas, and mining sectors. To do that, we are calling upon all university careers services to adopt an Ethical Careers Policy, in which they commit to ending all recruitment relationships they hold with the extractive industries.
However, not all universities have a dedicated in-house careers service which could implement such a policy. For these cases, we have developed the following Fossil Free Careers Declaration.
Signatories to the Fossil Free Careers Declaration pledge to exclude the extractive industries from any future recruitment services they might offer. They also commit to encouraging and requesting their current recruitment partners no longer work with oil, gas and mining companies.1
