Green Century° is proud to be the home of the first family of fossil fuel free, responsible, and diversified mutual funds in the U.S.
Our unique three-pronged approach to socially responsible investing allows us to deliver impact while seeking competitive returns in a way no other mutual fund can match.
1. Invests in responsible companies: the Green Century Funds invest in green stocks by investing in environmental leaders and innovators and companies leading their industries in environmental, social and governance performance ratings.
A sustainable investment strategy which incorporates environmental, social and governance criteria may result in lower or higher returns than an investment strategy that does not include such criteria.
2. Leads an effective shareholder advocacy program: Our team of shareholder advocates directly presses several dozen companies every year to improve their corporate sustainability practices.
3. Supports environmental and public health nonprofit organizations: Green Century is the only mutual fund company in the U.S. wholly owned by environmental and public health nonprofit organizations, and 100% of the profits earned managing the Green Century Funds can be used to support their work.
