Climate change is the greatest environmental threat facing our world today. But, together, we can support the transition to cleaner energy through every day choices, including where we invest our money.
The transition to clean energy is more possible today than ever before. It now costs the same to produce electricity using renewable sources as it does with traditional sources, like coal and natural gas. In addition, demand for cleaner energy is growing, and clean energy sources such as the sun and wind, unlike fossil fuels, are unlimited.
Investors have a key role to play in supporting these solutions. The Green Century MSCI International Index Fund offers U.S. investors a way to support and invest in the companies around the world at the forefront of the transition to a sustainable economy.
Vestas Wind Systems,* based in Denmark, is one of these companies. Vestas manufactures wind turbines and is responsible for more than 16% of global wind power production. This spring, 32 of the company’s newest wind turbines, which are also the world’s biggest and feature blades longer than nine buses, started generating electricity off the UK coast.
We can transition to cleaner energy and you can be a part of this move away from fossil fuels. Learn more about our International Fund and our other fossil fuel free mutual funds on our website, or call us at 1-800-934-7336. And thank you for being a part of the movement towards a cleaner, more sustainable world.
