Green Century has always believed that investing in line with your values is good for you, your financial future and the planet. A key part of our sustainable investing strategy is keeping your investments out of companies degrading the environment, such as polluting fossil fuel corporations, and instead investing in companies providing solutions to today’s environmental challenges.
The Green Century MSCI International Index Fund is the first responsible, diversified, and 100% fossil fuel free international index fund available to U.S. investors. This passively managed fund invests in companies with big goals for reducing their environmental impact, like Sony,* which plans to achieve an overall zero environmental footprint by the middle of this century.
The Green Century Balanced Fund invests predominantly in the stocks and bonds of U.S. companies as well as green bonds, which help finance climate mitigation projects in the U.S. and around the world. For example, funds from Apple’s* green bond, which is the largest green bond ever issued by a U.S. company, are being used to finance renewable energy, green building and recycling projects.
The Green Century Equity Fund tracks the longest running socially responsible index in the country, customized to eliminate all coal, oil and natural gas companies, as well as all fossil-fired utilities.
For twenty-five years, Green Century has been helping people save for their future without compromising their values. If you are interested in learning more about our growing family of fossil fuel free mutual funds, please visit our website, or give us a call at 1-800-934-7336.
