Green Century investors help support industry leaders, investing in companies that are building a greener tomorrow.
The Green Century Equity Fund tracks the longest running socially responsible index, customized to screen out fossil fuel companies, and invests in companies with the highest environmental, social and governance ratings – including four of the top five green power users in the Environmental Protection Agency’s Green Power Partnership. The Partnership is a program promoting clean power as a way of reducing the environmental impacts of traditional electricity generation.
These four companies — Intel,* Microsoft,* Cisco,* and Google* — together use over 8 billion kilowatts of green power. If that power were coming from fossil fuel sources, instead, it would generate carbon emissions equal to using over 653 million gallons of gasoline.
Given the uncertain political climate, it is perhaps more important than ever to support companies with a strong commitment to reducing greenhouse gas emissions, which is just one way that Green Century investors are helping pave the way towards a more sustainable economy.
If you are already a Green Century investor, thank you for helping support a more sustainable economy through your investments.
