A university has confirmed that it will no longer allow fossil fuel companies to recruit students through its careers service. The move comes as the institution looks to take action on climate change and address the environmental impact of these firms.

Fossil fuel companies will also be banned from other recruitment opportunities through Birkbeck, the University of London’s careers service.


This is a significant development that could see other universities following suit. It sends a strong message that these organisations must clean up their act to continue operating.


There are many ways in which universities can help tackle the climate crisis, and this is just one small step. But it’s an important one, and we hope to see more institutions taking similar measures in the future.

According to reports, Birkbeck is the first university in the UK to make such a move. This could be a sign of things to come, and we hope that other universities will also take steps to limit their impact on the environment.


Universities have a crucial role to play in the fight against climate change, and this is just one way in which they can make a difference. Let’s hope this is the start of a trend.


In a report by the BBC, Birkbeck said that it was committed to addressing the climate crisis and that this move was “part of a wider strategy” to achieve this.


The university also confirmed that it would not invite oil and gas firms to careers fairs or advertise their job opportunities to students.


This is a bold stance by Birkbeck and one that other universities should follow. With the climate crisis worsening, we all must do our bit to address the problem. Kudos to Birkbeck for taking this important step.


In addition to this news, the university also announced that it would be divesting from fossil fuel companies. This is another significant move that hopefully encourages other universities to do the same.


The climate crisis is an urgent problem, and we must take action now. Universities have a vital role in this, and we applaud Birkbeck for taking such bold measures. We hope to see other institutions following suit shortly.
