Green Century is working to protect tropical forests around the world. Is your mutual fund company?
Ending deforestation is critical to addressing the climate crisis, safeguarding endangered species and their habitats, and mitigating potential financial risks for investors.
Green Century leverages its position as an investor to highlight those risks to corporations to convince them to adopt no-deforestation policies across their global supply chains.
Tropical forest destruction is the second largest driver of the climate crisis. It also contributes to biodiversity loss, soil erosion, disrupted rainfall patterns, land conflicts, and forced labor. Agriculture is the leading driver of deforestation, accounting for about 70% of tropical deforestation.
Green Century is actively working to end the unnecessary deforestation caused by the unsustainable production of palm oil, soy, cattle, timber, and rubber in Latin America, Asia, and Africa.
Just one of our successful corporate engagements, a zero-deforestation commitment from Wilmar International,* the world’s largest palm oil trader, is expected to prevent 1.5 gigatons of carbon pollution between 2015 and 2020.
Green Century invests in environmental leaders and innovators, including renewable energy, energy and water efficiency, and healthy-food companies. We also invest in corporations with industry-leading environmental, social, and governance (ESG) performance ratings. For more information on our impact and our investment strategy, click here.
