Universities Superannuation Scheme (USS) – the pension scheme for university staff in the UK – is one of the largest pension schemes in Europe, worth £90 billion.

Currently USS invests over £570 million in fossil fuels companies.

Ethics for USS run the Divest USS campaign. We are a group of USS members committed to reforming USS and ensuring an investment strategy that protects the planet, respects human rights, invests responsibly and ensures good pensions.

Ethics for USS works closely with student groups including SOS-UK, People & Planet and also with ShareAction.

Read DivestUSS’s Report on the Universities Superannuation Scheme’s Response to the Climate Emergency published October 2022.
