Fossil-Free Research

Fossil-Free Research at Columbia refers to our push to put an end to the millions of dollars being funneled into Columbia’s environmental and energy research by fossil fuel companies. Our campaign, the first of its kind at Columbia University, has officially launched at the end of Fall 2023.


Sunrise Columbia researchers have been examining ties and monetary flows between the University and fossil fuel companies. We are regularly updating this page (and the associated web pages) as we learn more. If you have questions about the data or have information that isn’t on our website, please reach out! The following web pages detail Columbia’s donation & research ties with fossil fuel corporations.
