Green Century Does Not Invest in Nuclear Energy or Weapons

As the first family of responsible and diversified fossil fuel free mutual funds in the United States, Green Century has loudly championed fossil fuel free investing for years.

Less trumpeted is Green Century’s longtime commitment to nuclear free investing.

Green Century’s robust nuclear-free commitment recently earned it recognition as a “Hall of Fame” financial institution in Don’t Bank on the Bomb.

Don’t Bank on the Bomb is an annual report by the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons, winner of the 2017 Nobel Peace Prize, and PAX.

Green Century is the first firm in the United States to be selected for the Hall of Fame and is one of only 22 firms worldwide to earn the distinction.

Unlike many vehicles that claim to bar nuclear investment, Green Century explicitly prohibits investment in nuclear energy and nuclear weapons in its prospectus – and has for more than two decades.

The Green Century Balanced Fund “does not intend to invest in a company primarily engaged in the production of nuclear energy or the manufacture of nuclear equipment to produce nuclear energy or nuclear weapons, in the belief that these products are unacceptably threatening to a sustainable global environment.”

Nuclear free mutual funds are one more way Green Century offers investors the opportunity to align their investments with their values.
