Although these multinational corporations can seem so powerful as to be untouchable, most lecturers seemed to be aware of the campaign, and reacted positively to the suggestion that they might be able to help change. "People don't realise the influence they have over the companies or the pension scheme. We are trying to make them realise", said Cathrin Lange, a first year engineering student, and member of Green Group. Gilli Bernadt, a first year geographer added that the whole campaign is "about awareness raising, but lots of lecturers already know about it so it seems to be going well".
Ethics for USS is a campaign set up to persuade the university pension scheme to develop and implement a comprehensive ethical and environmental investment policy such that the pension fund is invested in a manner consistent with the values of university staff.
