Saving for retirement is all about the long-term. At Green Century, we think that means both the long-term performance of our investments, and the long-term impact our investments have on building a sustainable economy.
More evidence continues to support the notion that considering the environmental, social and governance characteristics of a company may lower risk and may contribute to long-term performance. With Green Century, you can save for retirement and put your investments to work to help protect the planet.
Green Century’s family of responsible, diversified and fossil fuel free mutual funds keep your investments out of the worst environmental offenders, like coal and oil companies, and instead seek competitive returns by investing in companies driving the transition to a cleaner world.
Solutions-oriented companies held by the Green Century Funds include Vestas Wind Systems,* which is responsible for 16% of globally installed wind power; First Solar,* which is helping build the largest photovoltaic plant in Latin America; and Johnson Controls,* a leader in energy efficiency.
