What Does It Mean To Invest 'Fossil Fuel Free'?

Green Century's Fossil Fuel Free Commitment

Green Century⁰ is proud to be the first family of responsible and diversified fossil fuel free mutual funds in the U.S.

For Green Century, and for many other leaders in the fossil fuel free investing movement, investing fossil fuel free has a very clear definition:

No investing in companies whose only, core, or majority business is the exploration, extraction, refining, processing, or transmission of fossil fuels.

In addition to the above definition, our investment strategy goes two steps further by screening out all companies that burn fossil fuels to produce electricity and any companies that own carbon reserves.

So, who do we invest in?

We invest in environmental leaders and innovators, including renewable energy, energy and water efficiency, and healthy food companies as well as companies leading their industry in environmental, social and governance (ESG) performance.
