The Green Century Funds invest in companies that are helping to mitigate environmental degradation and working to promote a more sustainable, low-carbon economy and world. Through divestment from fossil fuel corporations and reinvestment in solutions-oriented companies or those with outstanding environmental, social, and corporate governance ratings, we are constantly looking for ways to help our investors make an impact through the power of their investments.
One of the holdings in our recently launched Green Century MSCI International Index Fund, which is the first responsible and diversified international fossil fuel free passively managed index fund in the U.S., is Vestas Wind Systems.*
Headquartered in Denmark, Vestas is the only global energy company dedicated exclusively to wind. It has installed 77 gigawatts of wind power capacity across 75 countries, which is equivalent to mitigating CO2 emissions from 57,744,520 pounds of coal. In addition to the company’s wind turbines accounting for 20% of global wind production, it also sources all of its electricity from renewable energy sources.
If you are interested in learning more about investing in solutions-oriented companies that are working toward a more just, fair, and sustainable economy and world, please call us at 1-800-934-7336 or click here to request more information.
