Dear Royal College of Anaesthetists,

I'm writing to you under the Freedom of Information Act (2000) to ask that you please disclose to me the level of fossil fuel funding the university has received covering the whole of the previous calendar year (so academic years 21 / 22 and also all of 22 / 23 - going into 2023 and future agreements) from the following companies please.

The companies I'm looking for are all oil, gas, and coal companies, if you split by sector and are able to provide more, that would be greatly appreciated.

This would include grants, research agreements, gifts, sponsorship, hospitality, and donations from the following companies please:

BP, Shell, Total, Equinor (Statoil), Eni, Chevron, Exxon (ExxonMobil), ConocoPhilip (Conoco), BHP Group, Enbridge, Chesapeake Energy, Petrofac, Kellas Midstream, Kuwait Petroleum, OEUK, Dong Energy, Cheniere, Premtech, Aker BP, Glencore, Petronas, Saudi Aramco, Petro-Canada, E&P, OMV, Inpex, Ithaca Energy, Enquest, Woodside, Chrysaor, China Petroleum and Chemical Corporation (SINOPEC), Hewett Petroleum, Institute of Gas and technology, Balmoral Offshore, Airpac Bukom, Abbot Group, Capricorn Energy, Enterprise Oil, Melrose Resources, Rovotics, Senergy, Scottish Power, Trident, Zenocean, Schlumberger, Stena Drilling, Anglo-American, Tokyo Gas.

I'd also like the same for direct investments or shared investments in fossil fuel companies please, if both direct and shared (as in pooled funds) is too much to ask, then just direct investments will be fine.

A simple spreadsheet format will be fine for the purposes of this request.

Yours faithfully,

Max Colbert

Dear Max

 

The Royal College of Anaesthetists, a body not subject to the Freedom of
Information Act.

 

The Act covers central government departments and the executive agencies
and public bodies they sponsor. It also covers parliament, the armed
forces, devolved administrations, local authorities, the NHS, schools,
universities, and police forces. We are not one of these bodies and are
not listed in schedule 1 of the act.

 

As a charity we are unfortunately not resourced to deal with general
enquiries from the public on matters that concern them.

 

However, as I am responsible for the finances of the College, I can report
that we have not in the last 10 years received funding from the fossil
fuel industry (my length of service) and am unaware of us receiving any
funding from our inception in 1988.

 

We invest in charitable mixed pooled funds with Newton, CCLA and Swiss
Life (see our accounts on our website), we divested from any fossil fuel
holdings with these managers in 2021.

 

Regards

 

Mark
