About

Universities Superannuation Scheme (USS) – the pension scheme for university staff in the UK – is one of the largest pension schemes in Europe, worth £75 billion.

Currently they hold over £1,000 million in fossil fuels companies, £400 million in tobacco and £200 million in arms manufacturers.

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 People & Planet and also with ShareAction. The content of this website reflects the views of Ethics for USS members and not any organisation employing them.
